Written Answers — Department for Transport: Railways: Freight (16 Mai 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: The Government is committed to growing rail freight to unlock the economic and environmental benefits it can deliver. We are undertaking a number of initiatives including setting a long-term growth target of increasing freight moved by rail by at least 75% by 2050, which was announced in December 2023, and a review of the Mode Shift Revenue Support scheme. Network Rail also continues to work...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Railways: Waste (16 Mai 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: Network Rail needs to keep a supply of strategically placed rail on the network for track renewal and replacement, but it is also committed to removing excess scrap material from lineside, when commercially viable, to make the railway safer, higher performing and less visually impactful to customers and neighbours. Once routes have identified material for collection, it can either be recycled...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Avanti West Coast: Standards (16 Mai 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: As part of National Rail Contracts, operators must meet challenging operational targets to earn performance-based fees. If performance falls below a pre-determined level, the Department can intervene to act in passengers’ best interests. Officials continue to closely monitor and review Avanti West Coast’s (AWC) progress to a sustained recovery, restoring services reliably on the West...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Cycling: Speed Limits (16 Mai 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: The Network Rail metric for signalling failures indicates there were 2,936 signal failures on the rail system in Great Britain for the period 2023 to 2024. Network Rail does not hold data on how the rate of signal failures compares with other countries.

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Network Rail: Roads (16 Mai 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: Network Rail does not have a complete inventory of constructed pathways on its infrastructure. Network Rail is looking to tender a piece of work to use satellite imagery to identify the constructed pathways adjacent to the running railway.

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Railway Stations: Access (16 Mai 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: The Government appreciates how frustrating the issue of the difference in platform-to-train gap can be for passengers with disabilities and we remain committed to ensuring that all passengers have the same opportunities to travel on the rail network. Gaps can vary at stations across the network, due to both the design of the station and the platforms at the time of construction, sometimes...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Crewe Station (16 Mai 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: The canopies and main trainshed roof have limited asset remaining life and Network Rail expects replacement work to be complete by 2029. The Government has provided £44.1 billion to Network Rail for renewals work during this Control Period (2024-29) which will be used to fund the work.

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Transport: Finance (16 Mai 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: The Government has made substantial progress on delivering new local transport investments, a core commitment of the Network North Command Paper.

The Office of Rail and Road aim to publish the latest...

Public Bus Collisions - Question (13 Mai 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: My Lords, the Government are determined to make our roads safer for all users. The National Bus Strategy made it clear that local authorities and bus operators should work together to ensure that bus services are safe and perceived to be safe by all. We also introduced changes to the Highway Code in 2022 and have delivered high-quality walking and cycling schemes, which will be vital to...

Public Bus Collisions - Question (13 Mai 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: My Lords, as I have said, road safety is a priority for the Government. The department is determined to make roads safer for everyone, and the delivery of high-quality walking and cycling schemes, coupled with the changes to the Highway Code in 2022, will play an important part in addressing the safety concerns of people wanting to walk, wheel and cycle. Active Travel England is working with...

Public Bus Collisions - Question (13 Mai 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: My noble friend makes a very good point. It is a matter for individual bus companies, and of training. This issue is clearly of great importance to bus users but, as I say, it is for the bus companies themselves to ensure that their drivers are properly trained and take great care.

Public Bus Collisions - Question (13 Mai 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: I thank the noble Baroness for that question. The phrase used for these stops is “floating bus stops”. Local authorities are bound by the public sector equality duty, and it is for them to ensure that any infrastructure they install is safe, fit for purpose and delivered in a way that enables them to comply with equalities legislation. The department is aware of concerns raised by some...

Public Bus Collisions - Question (13 Mai 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: I note the noble Baroness’s comments.

Public Bus Collisions - Question (13 Mai 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: My Lords, like all road users, cyclists are required to comply with road traffic laws in the interests of the safety of other road users. This is also reflected in the Highway Code. Dangerous cycling is completely unacceptable, and that is why there are already strict laws in place for cyclists who break the law. The police have the power to prosecute if these are broken.

Public Bus Collisions - Question (13 Mai 2024)

Lord Davies of Gower: I am afraid I am unable to help the noble Lord with a number. I do not know whether we keep a record of that. I shall find out and if we do, I will write to the noble Lord.
