Thanks for the new railway, but where's the broadband gone?

What a way to run a railway!

A new report by MPs which follows an inquiry into the Government's plans for rail has concluded that there is no clear strategic plan, that projects such as Thameslink are tending to run behind time and over budget, and that the Department for Transport has not convinced its critics that it can deliver value for money.
