Written Answers — Department for Transport: Electric Vehicles: Vans (24 Mai 2024)

The Department carried out a call-for-evidence on MOT testing last year, which, among other things, asked the public for views on changing MOT...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Low Traffic Neighbourhoods (24 Mai 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: The Low Traffic Neighbourhood Review research report published in March was the final version of that document. This research report informed draft statutory guidance on implementing Low Traffic Neighbourhoods, which was published at the same time. It is this draft statutory guidance which I was referencing in Monday’s debate, when I spoke of a final version being published this summer.

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Electric Bicycles: Electric Motors (24 Mai 2024)

Written Answers — Department for Transport: West Coast Main Line (24 Mai 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: We note with interest the reports in the media about the application from Virgin Trains, and welcome open access applications where they provide improved connectivity and choice for passengers and do not disproportionately impact taxpayers. Access to the rail network, however, is ultimately a decision for the Office of Rail and Road in its role as independent regulator for the rail industry....

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Railways: North Wales (24 Mai 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: Avanti West Coast (AWC) has made significant progress in recovering from recent poor reliability and punctuality, but we are clear that performance is still not good enough and there is more to do. Officials continue to closely monitor and review AWC’s progress to a sustained recovery, restoring services reliably on the West Coast Main Line and delivering good value for the taxpayer....

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Old Oak Common Station: Passengers (24 Mai 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: Passenger numbers at Old Oak Common will depend on multiple factors including: what HS2 services are running at that point (including whether Euston has opened as the London terminus); the assumed Great Western Main Line calling pattern; and the assumed Elizabeth Line train frequency. Following the Network North announcement, detailed modelling and analysis is currently being undertaken for...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Railways: Midlands (24 Mai 2024)

As the scheme progresses through this next stage, we will work with key partners to identify and pursue opportunities for private funding.

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Crewe Station (24 Mai 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: Network Rail are responsible for the scheduling of renewals and maintenance works and how to prioritise this funding across the region over the Control Period. Network Rail will need Listed Building Consent to carry out the works and will prepare a phased strategy which aligns the roof replacement with track renewals in order to minimise the customer impact.

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Railways: Fares (24 Mai 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: The Government takes the issue of fare evasion and fraud very seriously. We currently do not hold estimates for the amount of money lost to railway fraud, however in 2023 the Rail Delivery Group estimated that in a normal year, approximately £240 million is lost through fare evasion on Great Britain's railways. To reduce fare evasion, in January 2023 we increased the value of the penalty...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: East Coast Main Line: Timetables (24 Mai 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: The industry steering group that oversees timetable introduction concluded that there were too many outstanding issues to have confidence that the new East Coast Main Line timetable can be delivered robustly in December 2024. Timetable production and access rights issues are governed by Network Rail’s Network Code, which is regulated by the ORR as the independent regulator to the rail...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Old Oak Common Station: Construction (24 Mai 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: As noted in the last report to Parliament, HS2 cost estimates are currently being revised in light of the scope changes arising from the Network North announcement.

Pedal Cyclists: Insurance - Question (23 Mai 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: My Lords, the Government considered this matter carefully as part of a comprehensive cycling and walking safety review in 2018. The Government have no plans to require cyclists to have insurance, because the costs and complexity of doing so would significantly outweigh the benefits, and because it would be at odds with the Government’s aim of getting more people to switch to cycling for...

Pedal Cyclists: Insurance - Question (23 Mai 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: My Lords, dangerous cycling puts lives at risk and is completely unacceptable. Like all road users, cyclists are required to comply with road traffic law in the interests of their own safety and that of other road users. This is reflected in the Highway Code. If road users, including cyclists, do not adopt a responsible attitude or if their use of the highway creates an unsafe environment or...

Pedal Cyclists: Insurance - Question (23 Mai 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: I hear what the noble Baroness says. That is a pretty drastic approach, but she has made her point well.
