Safety and innovation

Union Pacific (UP) plans to invest USD 3.4 billion in 2024. An estimated 56% of the capital plan - USD 1.9 billion - will be used for upgrading and replacing infrastructure, such as rail, ties, and ballasts, and USD 0.6 billion for locomotives and equipment.


The US class I railway adds that it will continue to modernise its rolling stock, upgrading older core units. It will pursue technology and expansion projects, such as siding extensions, to increase capacity, improve productivity and operational efficiency. Another focus will be on growing UP’s intermodal footprint, supporting business development particularly in Southern California, Phoenix, and Kansas City. (ben)
