Campaign against Abellio Greater Anglia

The National Rail Contract for East Anglia was directly awarded to Abellio by the Department for Transport in September 2021. Abellio, the international arm of Nederlandse Spoorwegen, the national state-owned rail operator in the Netherlands, had operated the previous East Anglia franchise since February 2012. The contract includes a majority of train services running to and from London Liverpool Street and is intended to run for five years. Abellio also operates the East Midlands Railway, as well as Merseyrail in a joint venture with Serco and West Midlands in a joint venture with JR East and Mitsui.

• Do you use the Abellio Greater Anglia service regularly?
• Do you believe it should be returned to public hands as part of a re-unified national rail network run for people not profit?
• Then, why not start a campaign building up to the franchise end?

Bring Back British Rail will support you by promoting your campaign’s details on this website and putting you in touch with other local activists via our Facebook, Twitter and Riseup communities. Please get in touch on the email address below!
