DCA (RAG): Amber/Red
DCA text: The amber/red delivery confidence rating reflected interface issues and risks related to the change of the franchise competition during the part-closure of Waterloo and interface issues with the retail project being developed. It is important to highlight that the IPA review team noted that the programme elements directly associated with delivery of infrastructure upgrades, rolling stock renewal was progressing well.
