Mr Winsor too cautioned that he could lessen use in his last budgetary declaration in December unless enhancements are made in the running of the much-delayed £10 billion West Drift Mainline update programme
‘Where is cash coming from’?

“The changes that are being inquired for are noteworthy what’s more, in the event that NR can deliver, it will mean better ventures for passengers ”
He went on: The down side is that, since this is a bigger budgetary settlement than beforehand planned for, we have to inquire where the cash is coming from
“We would emphatically battle any increment in admissions what’s more, cutting administrations appears a peculiar thought at the point when you are moving forward the track on which trains run “
