DfT sifts 60 new rail plans


01 May 2020

Sixty proposals for railway reopenings in England have been submitted to the ideas funding stream of the DfT’s Restoring Your Railway fund. 

The applications will be considered by a panel chaired by rail minister Chris Heaton-Harris. The other members are: Simon Clarke, the minister for regional growth and local government; Sir Peter Hendy, the chair of Network Rail; Jackie Sadek, the chief executive of UK Regeneration; and Isabel Dedring, global transport leader at consultant Arup.

The DfT will write to applicants in May to update them on the progress of their application.

Unsuccessful applicants will receive advice from the Department, to help them develop their application for consideration in a later round.

The deadline for the second round of applications is 22 May to register an interest and 19 June to submit applications.

In recognition that many council staff are pre-occupied with Covid-19 issues, a third round of applications will take place in November.
