To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, pursuant to the Answer of 20 July 2015 to Question 6967, what funding has been allocated to each project for each year under the heading, Funding for projects in addition to the agreed Rail Investment Strategy, given in the Answer of 9 July 2015 to Question 5694.
7 September 2015
The projects in addition to the agreed Rail Investment Strategy are:
Ely-Soham double tracking
Syston – Stoke gauge enhancement
Sheffield Tram Train
New Stations Fund (5 stations)
Western flood resistance
Hull electrification study
Coventry – Nuneaton Phase 2
Wigan – Bolton electrification
Gospel Oak – Barking and London freight electrification
Gatwick station (second phase)
Access for All ‘top-up’
The project funding is not broken down by year as Network Rail was reclassified to the public sector, which means that project funding spend is triggered by the projects’ actual expenditure in each year.
There is a small variation between the total funding amounts in this table and the one sent earlier under the heading “Funding for projects in addition to the agreed Rail Investment Strategy”. This is because the table in question 5694 is a cash forecast year by year, whereas this table is the price set at the projects’ earlier approval dates.
