star this property answer text <p>Department for Transport officials have asked Southeastern to consider all available opportunities within the rolling stock market and received outline options in February, with a more detailed proposal due from Southeastern by the end of the month. Any decision on the Department funding additional rolling stock must be supported by a business case which clearly demonstrates both affordability and value for money, and we will be working closely with Southeastern to assess the options, costs and benefits before taking any funding decisions.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Rail links to and from Huddersfield will benefit from the investment the Government is already making in the North of England rail network in support of its vision of a Northern Powerhouse. The Government has committed to the Northern Hub and electrification programmes, and capacity improvements at Huddersfield station. The new East Coast franchise awarded in November 2014 will lead to Huddersfield being introduced as a new destination for Intercity East Coast services with one service to and from London per day from 2019. The Government has also required bidders for the new Northern and TransPennine Express franchises to replace outdated trains, add a third more capacity and invest in stations. In addition the Leeds City Region Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) has been provisionally allocated over £780m of Government Growth Deal funding over 20 years towards the West Yorkshire Combined Authority’s multimodal West Yorkshire plus Transport Fund, from which priorities for local transport investment will be determined.</p><p> </p><p>The Government established Transport for the North (TfN) last year to formalise cooperation with Northern City Regions and LEPs on transport issues in the North. The aim is for TfN to speak with one voice to Government on the transport priorities for the whole of the North. The Department is working closely with TfN and Rail North to develop and prioritise the rail options so that the first tranche is ready for consideration as part of the Government’s Rail Investment Strategy for the next rail investment period (CP6, 2019 – 2024). The Government is providing TfN with a development budget of up to £12.5m in 2015/16 to support its wider strategy development work.</p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>Services between Telford and Birmingham are supplied by more than one operator; London Midland and Arriva Trains Wales. Their Franchise Agreements state the minimum service provision of the train operator to protect service provision for passengers. This sees both providing hourly services Monday to Friday and where reasonable, these shall be timed with the other operator to promote a half hourly service.</p><p> </p><p>Whilst the train operators cannot run fewer services than are stipulated (nor simply remove a station stop or two as this could mean that the minimum specifications for those removed station stops are not met), if the train operators believe that the demand exists for additional services (which may have quicker journey times) and they have the rolling stock, staff availability and they can obtain the required track access rights, there is nothing to stop them from running more frequent services. My Hon Friend, may wish to contact the operators to explore what options may be available to achieve quicker journeys in the short-term*.</p><p>Local Councils can also help specify and fund transport solutions if they decide that this is the best way to meet local transport needs. In doing so, they would discuss the feasibility of the scheme with Network Rail and the train operator(s). If the scheme is feasible and represents value for money, the Council would need to be prepared to fund the cost from sources which are available for transport investment.</p><p>The Department is aware of stakeholder aspirations for improvements in and to the service provision between Telford and Birmingham. As part of the competition for the new long term franchises for this route, public consultations will be opened to help inform the specification for those franchises.</p><p> </p><p>*Arriva Trains Wales contact email:<a href="mailto:customer.relations@arrivatrainswales.co.uk" target="_blank">customer.relations@arrivatrainswales.co.uk</a>; London Midland contact email: <a href="http://www.londonmidland.com/contact/contact-us/contact-form/" target="_blank">http://www.londonmidland.com/contact/contact-us/contact-form/</a></p><p> </p><p> </p>
