The journey time improvement assessments for the Derby and Market Harborough improvements are:

Derby station remodelling: Sheffield to London – 1.5 min saving / London to Sheffield – 2.5 min saving

Market Harborough line speed improvements (for non-stopping trains): Sheffield to London – 0.5 min saving / London to Sheffield – 0.5 min saving

Please note the savings above represent infrastructure capability; the final journey time improvements will be determined by the operating timetable, the development of which is ongoing.
