star this property answer text <p>Lorry drivers from the Republic of Ireland pay for the HGV Levy in the same ways as users from other countries. The levy can be paid online, at a number of official Point of Sale (PoS) locations, at driver self-serve facilities offered by some operators and through a number of booking agents. The majority of levy purchases are via the HGV Levy website.</p><p> </p><p>The overall compliance rate for foreign vehicles is high, according to figures collected by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency in Great Britain, at 95%. The Department for Transport has not produced equivalent compliance rates by country of origin, but there are indications that vehicles from Ireland in Great Britain have a very similar compliance rate compared to vehicles from other countries.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>In line with answers provided to previous similar questions, the government’s focus has been on ensuring that the industry returns to a stable timetable as quickly as possible and that passengers in the most affected areas are compensated for the disruption caused. This approach is delivering for passengers, with the performance of both Govia Thameslink Railway and Northern having improved significantly in recent weeks, andcompensation schemes are now in place for all of the affected operators ensuring the disruption that passengers have experienced is financially recognised. Improving the performance of our railways in the North remains the focus, reflected in the recent appointment of Richard George as the single person to lead rail performance improvement in the North.</p> more like this

The Central Section Phase 3 is currently in its definition phase and its signalling system is yet to be confirmed. However, the possibility of using a digital European Train Control System (ETCS) across East West Rail is being explored and could be implemented in the future, across all phases, should it provide significant additional benefits for the programme.</p> more like this
