The Initial Industry Plans set out how the industry can deliver a more efficient and better value railway and how the railway can play a key role in driving sustainable economic growth.
The Initial Industry Plans examine the key choices and options facing funders in specifying the future outputs of the railway and the level of funding required. These choices will inform the development of the governments’ High Level Output Specifications and Statements of Funds Available to be published in summer 2012 as part of the Periodic Review 2013 process as well as informing the programme of franchise re-letting.
The development of the Initial Industry Plans has been overseen by the Planning Oversight Group which involves representatives of Network Rail, passenger and freight train operators and suppliers.
This work has built on the successful cross industry work on Route Utilisation Strategies and has sought input from cross industry groups responsible for co-ordinating industry plans in relation to safety, performance, sustainability, capacity, access strategies, asset management, technology and innovation.
Recognising the devolved funding responsibilities, separate documents have been produced for England and Wales, and Scotland.
