The Growing Demand for Improved Railway Technology
The Department of Transport has released a new report stating that Railways have now become the second most-used mode of transport in the UK, second only to cars. This demonstrates that, as roads have become more convoluted, people are making use of the UK’s rail service more and more. This is especially true for those living outside of a city centre but travelling into it for work. Driving into a city during rush hour normally means adding extra time onto your commute. This means that travelling by train can be a much more convenient and appealing option, but only if they are running efficiently. To keep customers happy, trains need to be consistently on time, comfortable, and able to run efficiently during peak times.
