Queen Adelaide Survey Procurement Support Documentation

The request was refused by Network Rail Limited.

Rupert Moss-Eccardt

Dear Network Rail Limited,

Cambridgeshire County Council are currently considering closure of level crossings on the B1382 in Queen Adelaide.

They refer to a number of documents in their RFQ for the consultants involved. These are

• Risk Assessment of Strategic Options for Ely North Junction (Nov 2015)
• Suitable and Sufficient Risk Assessments
o Queen Adelaide- Kings Lynn Level Crossing (Nov 2015)
o Queen Adelaide- Norwich Level Crossing (Nov 2015)
o Queen Adelaide- Peterborough Level Crossing (Nov 2015)
• Ely Area Constraints- Draft Briefing Note (Aug 2016)

I requested them from the County Council but they say they can't as they are your documents so I am now requesting them from you. My request to the County is here:
https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/q...

To save time, if you baldly assert commercial confidentiality I will seek an internal review.
To help with the public interest test, this will significantly affect the lives of several residents and reduce property values. At the same time there is the assertion this will save lives so there is clearly a great deal of public interest.

Yours faithfully,

Rupert Moss-Eccardt

Dear Network Rail Limited,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Network Rail Limited's handling of my FOI request 'Queen Adelaide Survey Procurement Support Documentation'.

Although I acknowledge that documents in preparation can be exempt, cannot believe that applies to risk assessments. If the risk assessments of each of the crossings are incomplete, please confirm that explicitly, for each crossing.

Similarly the strategic options risk assessment from 2015 - if it is still in preparation then providing it to inform the policy development at the County Council would make any proposals, for which the County is spending good money, unsafe. Again can you explicitly confirm that that risk assessment is incomplete and also describe what is missing or what makes it unsuitable.

I am able to believe a document described as 'draft' is incomplete. Can you say what is missing in the process to no longer make it a draft, please?

In summary, can you please consider each document in turn for the tests you seem to have applied in one go and, also, confirm for each document that it is incomplete and describe its current state and what would need to happen to make it complete?

Thanks

Rupert
