Description: The Secretary of State is required to designate certain services for the carriage of passengers as suitable for franchising under section 23 of the Railways Act 1993 (as amended). The West Coast services have been so designated and a procurement competition therefore needs to be run to re-let the West Coast Main Line. The franchise is one of the largest in terms of farebox revenue and connects London with key conurbations such as Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow and Liverpool. The aims are • to deliver the re-franchising of West Coast services by December 2012, • to ensure that the new franchise is let on terms that meet the franchise objectives; and • to ensure that the new franchise meets the Department’s value for money and affordability requirements. The project was cancelled in October 2012. As a result the original delivery plan was no longer achievable. The Department announced the long term plans for rail franchising https://www.gov.uk/government/news/fresh-start-for-franchising in March 2013.
