TransPennine Express


A new TransPennine Express franchise will be created by the Strategic Rail Authority (SRA) after getting the go ahead from transport secretary Stephen Byers. The three short listed parties will be asked to resubmit proposals taking into account revised requirements for the service along the busy M62 corridor. In a separate development the SRA has said it will split the Wales & West franchise into two managerial units broadly covering the Welsh and English operations.
