As we progress the design/development work, we will consider, but not be limited to, the following factors in deciding on preferred options:

  • does the option deliver the required capacity and meet stakeholder aspirations?
  • is the option consistent with railway and wider social, environmental and economic policy? 
  • the impacts on communities and passengers
  • environmental and sustainability impacts
  • the amount of additional land that would be required to deliver the scheme
  • is it affordable?
  • can it be constructed?
  • operational access requirements
  • maintenance.

Feedback is invited on these factors.
