National Express has won a two year extension to the Midland Mainline train operation franchise. The agreement will lead to a £238M investment package to improve services. The revised Midland franchise will involve a massive investment in infrastructure, rolling stock and station improvements. The franchise is the first of the longer term franchises for which an extension has been negotiated, and includes a commitment to a 2% improvement in performance.
