Network Rail

Question for Department for Transport

UIN 5510, tabled on 2 July 2015

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what the current gap is between Network Rail's Control Period 5 funding and the company's expected total outlay during that Control Period.

Answered on

7 July 2015

The Office of Rail and Road’s Final Determination set Network Rail’s total spend at £38bn in Control Period 5 (2014-2019). This covers operations, maintenance, renewals and enhancements to the rail network.  Of that determination, around £12bn was allocated to enhancements / investment programme.

I have commissioned Sir Peter Hendy to re-plan the enhancements programme so that delivery in Control Period 5 stays within the original budget allocation.
