Detail of outcome
The InterCity West Coast franchise is expected to commence on 9 December 2012. The department is seeking comments on:
- the proposed train service requirement
- the proposition that we should not have a business case on the change from the more detailed specification but would instead assess the affordability, benefits and costs of the proposed franchise at a later stage
This consultation will be conducted in line with the government’s code of practice on consultations and the criteria outlined in section 8 of the original InterCity West Coast consultation document.
