answer text <p>There are currently no plans to further extend electrification on the Midland Main Line (MML), beyond those works planned by the MML enhancements programme and HS2 Phase 2b. The Department for Transport has taken the decision to deliver new bi-mode trains for MML intercity services. Together with significant infrastructure investment along the route, for example the track and signalling upgrade at Derby station which was completed last year, this will mean that passengers will benefit from faster journeys, and from more seats and better quality trains with as little disruption to passengers as possible.</p> more like this
