Railways: North-west

Volume 688: debated on Wednesday 24 January 2007

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they have made an assessment of the cost of reinstatement of (a) the Todmorden railway curve, and (b) the passing loop at Nelson, together with any other necessary changes. [HL1346]

To advance infrastructure proposals, a business case for the proposals should first be developed, usually by local or regional bodies working with Network Rail. The Government have not made an assessment of the costs of these railway schemes as no business case has been received.
