star this property answer text <p>The Sheffield to Manchester corridor has recently seen an improvement which means that since 2018 there is an hourly Sheffield to Manchester Piccadilly service every day and two weekday trains per hour from New Mills Central to Manchester Piccadilly via Bredbury – one of these trains is a Hope Valley Sheffield service. We will be working with industry parties to deliver further improvements with the planned split of the Liverpool to Norwich East Midlands Railway service into a self-contained Liverpool to Nottingham service in 2021 and when the Hope Valley capacity improvement scheme is delivered thereafter.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>DfT currently has just over 160 staff working directly on EU Exit and is drawing in more resource. The department’s current assessment is that it will not require a significant increase in staff numbers if the UK leaves the EU with a deal. In a no deal scenario, a substantial number of additional staff are likely to be redeployed from other roles in Government. The majority will be internal DFT staff or staff from other government departments. These requirements are being kept under regular review.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government recognise that the cost of travelling for rail passengers can seem high – this is why since 2014 we have taken action and capped the regulated rail fares in line with RPI inflation. Train fare revenue is crucial to funding day-to-day railway operations and delivering the investment and massive upgrade programme currently underway, all of which passengers demand and expect. 98p of every £1 in passenger revenue is reinvested in the network to improve passenger’s services.</p><p> </p><p>Tangible benefits to the Sheffield City Region on both the Northern and TPE franchises will become apparent to passengers during 2019 with new trains being introduced, delivering additional services and increased capacity for commuters.</p><p> </p><p>Benefits planned by East Midlands trains are, for long-distance journeys, it will reduce journey times between Sheffield and London by up to 20 minutes in the peak.</p><p> </p><p>There will be a brand new fleet of bi-mode trains serving Sheffield from 2022, with more seats. The first train will enter passenger service by April 2022.</p>

star this property answer text <p>LNER has one contract in place with Rail Gourmet; for catering logistics and product supply. While there is an element of fixed cost in this contract, most of the spend under the terms of this contract is driven by the amount of products (food and drink) LNER orders from Rail Gourmet. The value of these contracts is commercially sensitive as it could well impact a proposal an alternative supplier would put forwards when next this contract goes through a competitive tender exercise. This could then reduce funds returned by LNER to the tax payer.</p> more like this
