Rail franchise delay puts Derby jobs on line

The train maker Bombardier could be forced to cut hundreds of jobs if Britain’s vote to quit the EU derails the award of rail franchises.

Fears are growing that an imminent contract to run the Greater Anglia route between London and Norwich could be delayed as bidders face the prospect of far lower profits from the route — potentially triggering a domino effect on an already congested rail franchise timetable.

That is believed to have stoked fears at Bombardier, which hopes to win work for the 2,000 staff at its Derby factory. Derbyshire voted 59.1% in favour of Brexit....
The rest is behind a registration or pay wall.
