Mark leads the Wales and Western Region, supporting passengers and freight services in Wales, the Thames Valley, West of England and the South West Peninsula, and transporting commuters to key employment hubs including London, Cardiff, Bristol, Birmingham, Manchester and Liverpool. The regions directly serves London Heathrow, Europe’s busiest international airport and provides connections to Cardiff, Bristol, Birmingham, Manchester, and London Gatwick airports.
Working through our Alliance with GWR on Western route and through our close working relationship with TfW in Wales, we are delivering a number of projects to create more capacity on the network, reduce journey times and improve facilities for passengers.
