Super Express (IEP)

The Department for Transport started the Intercity Express Programme (IEP) in 2005 to consider what should replace the ageing High Speed Trains (HSTs). Following the government’s decision to electrify the Great Western Main Line to Swansea, IEP is integrated with the electrification programme in addition to Network Rail’s investment programmes, Crossrail, the Thameslink programme and HS2. As part of the IEP, Network Rail will deliver infrastructure changes and Agility Trains (a consortium of Hitachi Rail Europe and John Laing Investments) as the Train Service Provider will deliver the Hitachi-made, Hitachi-maintained trains into passenger service each day.
