Workington - wise words from Wolmar

So Workington is reunited, thanks to a sprightly turn of foot from Network Rail, Northern, DRS and DafT.

Whilst congratulations are due to all involved it is time for some wise words from Wolmar:

Now if all this can be done in a few days, then why can’t new stations, extra bits of track, altered junctions and the like be done far faster and more cheaply?


And now the precedent has been set the usual excuses for inertia will not wash.

So Eye wonders if reconnecting Workington will become a future stick with which to beat the industry or a blue print for actually getting things done?
