    The report is quite clear that tha west of england route would be AC. Doubling it and making it 110 mph would make sense however making sense isn't always the way things actually work. So is there any specific information on other planned improvements I know that dynamic loops are going to be installed on the single track section.

    Dynamic loops are just a way of saving cash and still restrict capacity as you have to base the timetable around the infrastructure, there is little scope for change.

    Very good news! Though this announcement is about 50 years too late if you ask me! This all should have been done years ago!
