star this property answer text <p>Transport investment decisions are supported with a 5-part business case. Appraisal information largely informs the economic case, which aims to provide a comprehensive overview of a proposal’s impacts. This includes a wide range of social and environmental factors, as well as time savings and economic impacts. The proportion of benefits falling in these different categories varies on a proposal-by-proposal basis and information on the proportion of benefits from (1) small time savings, and (2) other effects such as wider impacts, is not centrally held.</p> more like this

The infrastructure improvements provided by the RIS for CP5 create additional capacity. Applications to use the capacity are currently with the Office of Rail Regulation (ORR) from both the InterCity East Coast franchise and an open access operator. A decision on these applications is expected from the ORR in due course. Any decision on future aspirations for additional open access or freight services will taken by the ORR.</p><p> </p>
