star this property question text To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Baroness Vere of Norbiton on 29 May (HL15705), whether any privately funded rail scheme developed under the Market Soundings Finding Report that relies on a guarantee of franchised train operation usage complies with its funding criteria and, if not, whether the only schemes that can comply will be those on which only privately operated open access services run; how many of such schemes on which only open access operators will operate have been submitted; and whether this condition was clearly set out in the invitation to companies to submit schemes. more like this

star this property answer text <p>The market sounding exercise undertaken last year did not seek specific schemes to be submitted. The exercise sought to gauge market appetite for the taking of risk in relation to the design, construction, financing and funding of a new southern rail scheme to Heathrow Airport. The briefing document published as part of the market sounding did make clear that for schemes to be considered true market led proposals, full risk would have to be borne by the private sector. This includes the acceptance of revenue risk without requiring undertakings or guarantees by government including of future train usage.</p> more like this

The department recently produced guides, aimed specifically at commercial drivers, to help reduce the severity and impact of a diesel spill. Highways England is also looking at ways to improve how our own staff and service providers respond and deal with spillages. In April 2019, the department commenced a research project to understand the causes of fire in commercial vehicles.</p><p> </p><p>The department does not have evidence of what role litter plays in these incidents. As set out in the Litter Strategy for England (2017), the Government is committed to reducing the amount of litter on our network.</p>

The department believes that in such circumstances a transfer of the assets to the relevant local authority is the appropriate way forward so that the local authority can ensure that the relevant property conforms to local policies and that safety, security and long-term maintenance issues are addressed.</p><p> </p><p>Departmental officials are willing to support discussions relating to any such transfers.</p><p> </p>
