Network Rail has published a comprehensive list of major development opportunities available for third parties to fund, finance or deliver.
The pipeline covers all aspects of rail upgrades that have been deemed open to third parties including station refurbishments, new routes, electrifications, signalling and capacity improvements.
The projects cover all eight route areas including Scotland and Wales, with 13 of these schemes valued at more than £100m.
Network Rail noted that the projects were “a list of potential opportunities for third parties and inclusion in this list does not necessarily represent a commitment to deliver a project”.
Details of the schemes to be taken forward will be confirmed as the Control Period 6 settlement is finalised, with a Network Rail spokeswoman adding that the client “will be looking to update the pipeline of opportunities on a regular basis”.
