Through this consultation, we are:
- explaining our planned approach for securing Great Western franchised services when the current direct award franchise ends
- seeking views on a proposed franchise specification with a focus on changes planned during the 5 year period from September 2015
Our consultation document provides information about current services and the impact of major projects on the franchise. It explains what our objectives are for the franchise and the options being considered.
We want to hear from passengers and other stakeholders with an interest in the franchise. We also encourage potential rail scheme promoters, including local authorities, to comment on the proposals and notify us of extra services they may wish to purchase.
