A taskforce is being arranged to find paths to speed up railway services to the eastern part of England by as much as twenty five percent. Chancellor George Osborne stated that he wanted the travel time from Norwich to UK capital London to be cut to ninety minutes and from Ipswich to London to sixty minutes.

Currently, it takes around 2 hours from Norwich to London and around 1 hour and ten minutes from Ipswich to London. The new taskforce would be made up of Network Rail experts, Department for Transport officials as well as local MPs.

The mainline railway service goes through Suffolk, Norfolk and Essex.

Mr George Osborne, who addressed the chamber of commerce of the city, welcomed Norwich in 90 campaigns by business leaders, councils and MPs to speed up links to The England capital. His campaign targets to cut the tour time to ninety minutes to London.

According to reports, Mr Osborne told that East Anglia is one of the fastest developing regions in the nation and it is establishing itself as a world leader in manufacturing, science and technology. To support this growth they need to have efficient and modern railway services and improved connections.

He added that he is absolutely behind the region and that is t he reason why he has set up a taskforce to see how they could build on the excellent work by local MPs and set their sights on getting to Norwich in 90.
