Double decker trains could be introduced on British railways
in a bid to ease overcrowding at peak times.
Designers are said to be working on ways of developing a new
design that would still be compatible with low bridges and tunnels, according
to The Times.
The idea has been mooted several times in the UK but
subjected to long delays due to the extensive work required, including raising
bridges and building new tunnels.
The Rail Safety and Standards Board said the new concepts
could be introduced on the country’s busiest lines between 2020 and 2022.
