Network Rail are working with suppliers on the detailed designs for the scheme and are very mindful of the sensitive nature of the National Park.

Work is underway to update the business case for the scheme to inform a final investment decision this Autumn. This is in line with our new approach to rail enhancements to ensure we address the needs of passengers and freight, and that funding commitments appropriately reflect the stage of development of schemes.
