Midlands Connect is developing proposals for line speed improvements between Birmingham and Shrewsbury. When completed, the outputs of this work will be presented in a strategic outline business case (SOBC), which I hope to receive this summer. The SOBC will provide an assessment of delivery timescales, costs, and benefits of the scheme, and the Department will make a formal assessment of the proposals upon receipt of the business case.
