The Transpennine Route Upgrade (TRU) is a multi-billion-pound project transforming rail travel across the Transpennine route (Manchester - York). The engineering work to tracks and stations across the North will bring our customers more frequent trains that run on a cleaner, more reliable railway.
Funded by the Department for Transport and delivered by Network Rail, our TRU team works closely with Network Rail and Northern colleagues to deliver the improvements, which will help enhance the performance, reliability, and sustainability of the route and minimise disruption to customers whilst doing so.
A summary of the work completed is provided below, showcasing the highlights over the last six months:
In January 2023, the TRU marketing campaign was relaunched, aiming to remind customers about the benefits of the route upgrade.
The campaign, in collaboration with Network Rail, Northern and the Department of Transport saw some incredible results, with the public demonstrating great recall of the campaign and its key messages.
As the programme continues we want to ensure our customers are engaged and reminded of the developments taking place across the network and the worthwhile benefits they are set to bring to communities across the North.
In an effort to continue this line of communication and awareness with customers, our marketing team have installed TRU branding at our stations, detailing the advantages TRU will bring for customers.
