Officials from the Department for Transport and Network Rail regularly discussed Network Rail’s Business Plan update in the period of December 2014 to March 2015. In March, Network Rail provided early forecasts for the remainder of Control Period 5 for delivery volumes and costs in operations, maintenance and renewals, but these were not submitted for consideration as a worked-up plan due to further work being required, including on enhancements.
