SRA plan awaits Bowker input


PUBLICATION OF the Strategic Rail Authority's long awaited strategic plan has been put back until 14 January to allow new chairman Richard Bowker to input to the document.

The plan, which will provide long awaited details of the SRA's rail network development proposals, was put together by less senior staff.

It is understood to have been substantially completed ahead of Bowker's arrival at the SRA this week.

And previous chairman Sir Alastair Morton is understood to have had no input into the document, even though he put together the SRA's strategic agenda which was published in March (NCE 15 March).

It is understood that the plan was almost ready for publication before Railtrack went into administration in October, but had to be altered to allow for the change.
