|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 Thameslink, Southern and Great Northern (TSGN) services have been so designated and a procurement competition therefore needs to be run to re-let the franchise.
This project will merge the existing Thameslink and South Central franchises.
The aims are
to deliver the re-franchising of TSGN services by September 2013,
to ensure that the new franchise is let on terms that meet the franchise objectives; and
to ensure that the new franchise meets the Departments value for money and affordability requirements.
Following the West Coast contract cancellation the overall rail refranchising programme was paused, 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. |
