What are the benefits of the East Coast Upgrade?

The work will mean more trains will be able to run between London, the North and Scotland with thousands of extra seats per day added. 

This work will allow LNER to run more trains and help unlock the full journey benefits of our new Azuma fleet. Journeys into and out of the station will be more reliable with fewer trains getting in each other’s way; and with straighter tracks allowing for quicker acceleration and deceleration.
