NXEA Successor To Be Dutch?
There are reports in the media that the successor to NXEA will be the Dutch company, Abellio. The Department for Transport has declined to comment but an announcement is due this month. A short 29 month franchise running from next February is being bid for the Greater Anglian area and a permanent 15 year contract could follow if the line is well managed. As well as Abellio, Stagecoach and Go-Ahead are bidding for the franchise.
