Details

This is the high level output specification (HLOS) for railway control period 6 (April 2019 to March 2024). It sets out what the Secretary of State for Transport wants to be achieved by railway activities during control period 6 for the Office of Rail and Road (ORR) and for the rail industry. It includes an initial statement of funds available (SoFA), which outlines the government’s initial view of how much funding it can provide to support these activities.

The HLOS is a statutory requirement introduced by the Railways Act 2005.

On 12 October 2017, the initial SoFA was superseded by the final SoFA 2017.

HLOS 2012 is also available, which sets out what the Secretary of State wants to be achieved by rail activities during railway control period 5, from April 2014 to March 2019.
