Julian asks Transport Secretary to commit to new Azuma trains coming to York by August

June 14, 2019

Yesterday, Julian questioned the Secretary of State for Transport, Chris Grayling about the delays to the introduction of LNER’s new Azuma trains on the East Coast Mainline. The trains are already operating between London and Leeds but York has had to wait due to issues with signalling systems further up the line.

The Secretary of State has today confirmed to Julian that Azuma trains are on track to reach York on the 1 August, stating that they will deliver ‘a transformative experience’ for passengers travelling to the North and Scotland.

After leaving the Chamber, Julian said:

“I was pleased to hear a firm commitment today from the Secretary of State that the new timeframe for the arrival of the first Azuma train into York Station will be met. We have long needed to see greater investment in the railway network in the North and new rolling stock has always been high up on the list of priorities for local passengers

The new Azuma trains represent a significant step forward, with more seats and faster, more comfortable journeys. They also bring environmental benefits for constituents living near the East Coast Mainline, who will benefit from reduced noise and air pollution”.
