Written Answers — Department for Transport: Railways: Bridges (3 Dec 2018)

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Cross Country Rail Franchise (29 Nov 2018)

Andrew Jones: Analysis, undertaken on the Cross Country network, has shown that from Mondays to Thursdays, Cross Country trains are extremely busy in the morning and evening peak.

There have been some common themes,...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Severn Beach Railway Line: Electrification (28 Nov 2018)

Andrew Jones: Network Rail have not currently considered electrification of the line. However, the upgrade work from Dr Days Junction to Filton Abbey Wood, recently completed successfully, will directly benefit the service on the Severn Beach line. In particular, the separation of local stopping services from the faster Intercity trains will relieve a bottleneck outside Bristol Temple Meads.

It is the third-largest of all the departmental...

South Eastern Rail Franchise — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (27 Nov 2018)

Andrew Jones: I understand that, but it is important to have a set of statistics that give us comparable data from franchise to franchise over time so we can measure performance. Dwell times obviously influence journey lengths, and they are nearly always to do with how quickly people are able to get on and off changes at a platform. That is to do with the capacity and the popularity of the network. I will...
