The request was successful.

Dear Network Rail Limited,

I'd like to make an FOI request for information that you hold about the electrification of the line from Wolverhampton to Shrewsbury. To help limit the search for information I'm only interested in information from 2015 and 2016.

Yours faithfully,

Michael Edwards

FOI, Network Rail Limited

Dear Mr Edwards,

 

Information request 

Reference number: FOI2016/01232

 

Thank you for your email of 8^th November 2016. You requested the
following information:

 

 

I'd like to make an FOI request for information that you hold about the
electrification of the line from Wolverhampton to Shrewsbury. To help
limit the search for information I'm only interested in information from
2015 and 2016.

 

 

I have reviewed your request, but I cannot identify the information you
require from the details you have provided. It may be useful for you to
take a look at the [1]Electrification Route Utilisation Strategy (RUS)
(published) 2009 which is available on the Network Rail website. During
2015, as part of a ‘refresh’ of the existing Electrification Route
Utilisation Strategy (RUS), Network Rail has considered the likely
priority candidate routes for electrification after existing announced
schemes have been completed. Consideration of such routes has been
facilitated by Network Rail but undertaken through a rail industry working
group.

 

The line between Wolverhampton and Shrewsbury has been considered as an
option for future electrification. A socio-economic assessment of this
option reported it to be a ‘scheme which may have the potential to offer
medium value for money (or better) if delivered at the lower end of the
estimated cost range’.

 

To help me meet your request, I would be grateful if you could specify
what you might be interested in. For example are you interested in an
update to the Electrification RUS, the information provided to a Network
Rail RUS working group (as referred to above) or perhaps something else?

 

I am unable to progress your request without this information, so I will
close your case until I receive your response. In accordance with the
Freedom of Information Act 2000 the 20 working days I have to respond to
your request will commence when I receive your clarification.

 

If you would like to discuss any of the above please feel free to contact
me. Please remember to quote the reference number above in all future
correspondence.

 

I look forward to hearing from you.

 

Yours sincerely,

Dear FOI,
It's a little disappointing that it's taken 17 days for you to seek my clarification. Also, I believe my request is clear. I would like the information you hold about the possible electrification of the line from Wolverhampton to Shrewsbury that has been created in 2015 or 2016. In your response you have stated that information is held and you have even given examples. As I do not know enough about the internal workings of Network Rail it is difficult for me to be specific. However the couple of examples you have provided are certainly things I'd be interested to see.

Yours sincerely,
