The Transport Investment Strategy identified that, of the £46bn programme to operate and enhance the railway between 2014-19, £30bn is for renewals and enhancements of the network infrastructure. The volumes of renewals are set out in Network Rail’s CP5 Delivery Plan 2016 update and the enhancement outputs are set out in Network Rail’s June 2017 Enhancement Delivery Plan. There is no apportionment between England and Wales.
