Delay Repay for delays of 15 minutes or more (DR15) will be contracted as a requirement for new DfT franchises when contracts come up for renewal. The Department has received a proposal from Greater Anglia in relation to implementing Delay Repay 15 before their present contract expires. This proposal is in the early stages of being reviewed and analysed to determine whether it is affordable and represents value for money. Any announcement regarding introducing DR15 into Greater Anglia will be made once this evaluation is completed.
