Drivers 'losing out' to railways

"A spokesman for Network Rail described the alliances' figures as "highly misleading".

"Motorists should welcome investment in Britain's railways as it is one of the best ways to reduce congestion on the roads," he added.

Meanwhile, the Department for Transport said in a statement: "We must both tackle congestion and provide a safe, reliable and sustainable road network for the 21st Century.

"But to beat congestion we must also provide high-quality public transport and we make no apology for investing in rail, which is having clear benefits." "
