  • Station Commercial Project Facility


  • The £100m fund is to improve stations and reduce the cost of the railway to taxpayers

    Since the station commercial project facility (SCPF) was launched by the Department for Transport, Network Rail and the Association of Train Operating Companies (ATOC) in April 2011, more than £80m has been authorised for projects ranging from car parks and park-and-ride schemes to new retail space and station redevelopments.

    The final tranche of the fund to improve stations in England and Wales gives Network Rail, train operating companies, local authorities and other organisations another chance to submit bids for almost £19m of remaining funding.

    Deadline for applications

    Tranche 3 is open from 1 – 29 February 2012 inclusive, and the SCPF Awards Panel meet to determine the applications on 18 April 2012 and is available for train operators and third parties as well as ourselves.

    To be considered for funding, proposals must make improvements to the station environment, provide a financial return over and above project costs and be complete by the end of Control Period 4 (31st March 2014). There is no cap on the maximum value of proposals up to the £100m.

    Proposals will be assessed by a panel including the Department for Transport, the Association of Train Operating Companies and ourselves. We are administering and programme managing this facility.
