The only interesting thing in a very dull document was the complete omission of transport as a heading.
In happier news it allowed CamClegg to re-re-re-announce one or two rail projects.
Page 11 of the Together in the National Interest document offered the following tidbits:
We will further invest in infrastructure by:
- expanding our railway programme to create an ‘electric spine’ from Southampton to Yorkshire, electrify the South Wales Valleys railways, establish a western rail link to Heathrow, invest in the Northern Hub and create enough capacity for 140,000 extra daily commutes at peak times by the end of 2019;
- moving as rapidly as possible towards a national high speed rail network by carrying forward legislation for the first phase between London and Birmingham;
- upgrading transport in the capital city through Crossrail, Thameslink and by supporting an extension of the Northern Line to Battersea Power Station;
Or were they perhaps preparing to moon, in response to the Coalition's thin document?
