Joanna Whittington, ORR Chief Executive, said:

Competition between services on our railways delivers real benefits for passengers; providing more choice and making better use of the network.
We have been working closely with CMA on this project, and our analysis fully supports their view that more competition could realise even greater benefits for rail passengers.
We now look forward to working with governments and industry partners in developing the important changes needed to help provide the opportunity for more competition in the future.
