No Change To Greater Anglia Franchise Timetable
Ben Gummer, MP for Ipswich, raised the question in parliament of whether the process to decide the next franchise currently run by Greater Anglia will be delayed by the recent West Coast Mainline franchise debacle. The Minister for Transport, Patrick McLoughlin assured him that the process to determine the next franchise here should not slip.
The next franchise is due to run for fifteen years, starting in mid 2014, with consultation due to commence in 2013.
