star this property answer text <p>We have not estimated the cost of constructing a link road to Leeds Bradford International Airport as this would be a local road and the relevant local authority would be responsible for developing a scheme proposal. The Government sponsored study into improving connectivity to Leeds Bradford International Airport used an estimate provided by Leeds City Council of £38m in 2012 prices.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The Aviation Policy Framework published in March 2013 makes clear that developers should pay the costs of upgrading transport links where there is a need to cope with increased passenger numbers, but that a public funding contribution will be considered if the scheme has a wider range of beneficiaries. The relevant local authorities would therefore be responsible for assembling a funding package for a link road, in partnership with developers and other local stakeholders. Local Growth Funding could be used to provide a public sector contribution, and the West Yorkshire Combined Authority is being provided with a contribution of up to £781m towards the West Yorkshire Plus Transport Fund between 2015/15 and 2034/35. The Fund has been set up to deliver transport improvements across West Yorkshire and York.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Network Rail has paused a small number of schemes where it makes sense to do so to avoid potentially abortive costs or planning applications, particularly where the cost estimate has increased significantly as in the case of Ely to Soham where work has identified that this project is far more complex than anticipated and so the estimated cost has more than trebled.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The Ely to Soham double tracking work is one of a number of schemes which are needed to increase the number of freight trains which can run on the Felixstowe to Nuneaton route and a lot has been completed already. Network Rail has constructed a new section of railway at Nuneaton (Nuneaton North Chord), a new 1.2km stretch of track at Ipswich (Ipswich Chord) as well as various other pieces of work to re-model, re-signal and upgrade sections of the route between Felixstowe and Nuneaton.  On its own therefore, the Ely to Soham doubling does not affect the number of freight trains which can operate.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Between 2004-14 Network Rail achieved a cumulative improvement in efficiency of around 35-40% on operating, maintaining and renewing its network, as shown in Office of Rail and Road’s (ORR) Efficiency and Financial Assessments published for Control Periods 3 and 4.  The ORR set Network Rail a challenging target of making efficiencies on top of those already achieved of 19.4% for the period 2014-19 (Control Period 5). The evidence base for this target included the McNulty Report as well as a significant amount of top-down benchmarking, bottom-up analysis and studies.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>On train services, this Government is focused on maximising value for money for taxpayers and rail users. Since the relaunch of the franchising programme in 2013, each franchise has been subject to a detailed process of scrutiny, ensuring both that the benefits for taxpayers are realised and that the process maximises efficiencies. The success of the process in securing efficiencies of the type envisaged by McNulty is demonstrated by every successful bid achieving a better price than was originally envisaged by the Department, with consequential considerable benefits for the taxpayer.</p><p> </p>
