Railways: Sussex

Volume 489: debated on Tuesday 10 March 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will ensure that the process of producing a Sussex Route Utilisation Strategy secures a substantive revision of the timetable with a view to eliminating problems and shortening timetabled rail journey times. (261794)

[holding answer 9 March 2009]: Network Rail is in the course of developing a route utilisation strategy (RUS) for Sussex, in conjunction with, and on behalf of, rail industry partners and wider stakeholders. Editorial control of each RUS lies with a Stakeholder Management Group and it would be inappropriate for Government to seek to interfere in the workings of such a group.
