First Hull Trains’ ambitious plan to privately finance the electrification of around 70 miles of track between Hull and Selby has been given a major boost.

Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin confirmed in the House of Commons today (Thursday, 20th March) he has made £2.4m available to move the project to the next stage of development, GRIP Stage 3.

Will Dunnett, managing director at First Hull Trains, said: “This decision is good news for everyone at First Hull Trains and everyone in the city. It is testament both to the vision for the project and hard work invested that we’ve been able to persuade the Government to back us.
