star this property answer text <p>The work commissioned to date on transpennine rail freight demand and the review of the costs of creating a freight and passenger route via Skipton-Colne has an estimated cost of around £100,000. The anticipated broad division of that work is that project management will be lead by CPC; cost challenge will be lead by Jacobs, GHD and Gardiner and Theobald; and work on freight demand will be led by Jacobs, GHD and MDS Transmodal (subcontractor).</p><p> </p><p>The geographical scope of the work will cover at least the area indicated by the noble Lord as its purpose is to assess whether reinstatement of a rail route via Skipton-Colne is part of the right long term solution for transpennine rail traffic. The work is expected to report later this year.</p><p> </p><p>As indicated in response to a question from Lord Greaves (HL13163), we will publish the results of feasibility work on the Skipton-Colne scheme when this next phase is complete and we understand the full picture.</p> more like this
