Since 25 June 2015, there has been additional director-level focus on the Great Western Electrification project and a restructuring to focus on delivery of this priority project.

There has also been some re-allocation of a small number of Network Rail resources to the North West Electrification project. Other resources exist within the supply chain.

Other resources from the Midland Main Line electrification project and the North Trans-Pennine Electrification project have been re-allocated to other projects suited to their skills and location.
