The Department looks to local authorities to identify local transport needs. In November 2017, the Secretary of State said in A Strategic Vision for Rail that the challenge to our partners was to work with Government and the industry to develop compelling proposals for the next generation of rail schemes, identifying the places where rail is the right answer for local transport needs. All schemes would need to demonstrate a strong business case where they are seeking any available Government funding.
