star this property answer text <p>Her Majesty’s Government considers the needs of freight operators when developing passenger rail franchise specifications. While there are no specific measures included in current specifications relating to the carriage of small freight, parcels and letters on passenger trains, the Department for Transport is carrying out research into how better use can be made of spare capacity on trains. We will consider the outcome of this research in the design of future rail franchise specifications.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p> </p><p>It is not possible to provide the annual average frequency of discharge of storm sewage from the upgraded Mogden sewage treatment works (STW) as the upgrades only came into effect on 31 March 2013. A discharge from Mogden STW storm tanks has occurred on 54 days in the 12 months from 31 March 2013. This compares to an annual average of 95 spill days for the preceding 5 years. The period since 31 March 2013 has been exceptionally wet, causing additional spills. Despite this the storm discharges from Mogden STW have not led to a significant adverse impact on the quality of the river since the upgrades. The Environment Agency will continue to assess the performance of the upgrade to ensure it continues to comply with the Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive. The basis on which Thames Water estimated that Mogden STW will spill about once every two and a half years is not known.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Government’s current requirements for HS2 specify that on completion of Phase 1 it will be capable of enabling a train service of up to 11 trains per hour into and out of Euston and 14 trains per hour in each direction at Old Oak Common. On completion of Phase 2 the system shall enable up to 18 trains per hour into and out of Euston and at Old Oak Common.</p><p> </p><p>The Government’s aim is that all towns or cities which currently have a direct service to London will retain broadly comparable or better services once HS2 is completed. Some preliminary work on the future timetable for the West Coast Main Line was undertaken in the early part of 2014, but it is important to stress that the actual timetable operated in the 2020s will depend on the development of the railway and train services over the course of the coming decade. Network Rail is currently working with the rail industry, including the Department for Transport and train and freight operators, to consider future service levels in light of the opening of HS2, and these will be determined through normal rail industry access allocation processes in due course.</p>
