DfT Business Plan published

The DfT has published its 2011-15 Business Plan here

More to follow...

UPDATE: This doesn't bode well...

Dr Mike 'Death' Mitchell is still listed as Director of National Networks on page 28.

As ever DfT is master of its brief.

UPDATE: This from a Mr Richard Malins...

At last some good news in the Battle of the Barriers.

This from the same document:

B) Coalition Priorities The Department will no longer… …micromanage:

  • Local authorities by dividing their funding into numerous complex streams
  • Train Operating Companies with unnecessarily prescriptive requirements in rail franchise agreements
  • Local traffic management schemes with unnecessary requirements for central government approval
Perhaps DfT will now leave Sheffield Station alone?
