The Intercity Express Programme (IEP) is an initiative by the Department for Transport (DfT) that will provide the infrastructure and rolling stock needed to support growth and improvements on the Great Western Main Line and the East Coast Main Line intercity rail routes. Following the electrification of the Great Western Main Line, a fleet of bi-mode Class 800 and electric Class 801 trains will be deployed on the line from 2017, with further fleets of trains to come into passenger service on the East Coast Main Line from 2018.
