And the full CP5 (Control Period 5 - the five year period between 2014 and 2019) Strategic Business Plan can be downloaded and viewed from here:

http://www.networkrail.co.uk/publications/strategic-business-plan-for-cp5/


A lot of graphs to wade through, but some more flesh on the bones in terms of details of what's going to happen and when during this most exciting time for the railway industry.

The individual route business plan for the Western route is at the bottom of the linked webpage, it includes a useful consolidated 7 year calendar for CP5 (Control Period 5 - the five year period between 2014 and 2019) enhancements over the whole route area on page 62.

Though according to that construction of the south facing bay platform started last October.   Huh

Maybe it's when they started talking about it Smiley
or NR» (Network Rail - home page) don't know their North from their South and are confusing it with the bays for the Chiltern service to Oxford.  Wink (although they haven't physically started that either)

It might be when they started moving the great crested newts.  I bet they'd move on their own once the bulldozers started though...  Grin

Same page 62.  They can't spell Wootton Bassett either. It's not a typo as they did it twice.   Angry

And neither of you has used the correct name for the town. It has been Royal Wootton Bassett since 16th October 2011.  Wink

I purposely didn't as there is no station there (perhaps there will be and one hopes it will be so-named).

On the very first map of the 40 page booklet, they refer to Western- Super- Mare.... Shocked

Further on in the detailed plans there is maidenhead with a small m and 'Edingburgh!' Roll Eyes

AS I said to the media relations dept, if they can't get the little stuff right, whoever is going to trust them with the big stuff ?? Embarrassed

The junction at which the South Wales and GW (Great Western) main lines part company has, however, not been renamed to my knowledge Wink

Fair enough. It does appear that the Western Route Integration Programme is referring to the junction rather than the town. At least in the body of the GRIP (Guide to Railway Investment Projects) 6 schedule they spelled Wootton Bassett correctly.

Signalling is my particular interest - can anyone explain what "A combined conventional and modular resignalling (termed ^hybrid resignalling^) between Newton Abbot and Penzance is proposed for completion in CP6 (Control Period 6 - The five year period between 2019 and 2024)" means?

Simply a mixture of conventional Solid State Signalling (or Computer Based Interlocking) in the busy areas (such as Plymouth) and simple Modular signalling (as recently installed on the Ely to Norwich resignalling) in more rural areas (such as Cornwall).
