Railway white paper, HLOS, SoFA, and ITTs

Department for Transport railway white paper (156 pages, 2.7M PDF), including instructions to ORR on desired outputs and funds available, to be taken into account in the review of Network Rail charges for the period 2009-2014.

Transport Scotland's output specification (8 pages, PDF) was published two weeks ago.

The Department for Transport has also announced that it will now disclose franchise invitations to tender (subject to some redactions) when they are sent to bidders. But the web page does not yet include the invitations for the West Midlands, East Midlands and ECML (GNER replacement) franchises.

For further information or advice please contact Franck Latrémolière.
