The next five year funding period - Rail Control Period 6 (2019 - 2024) - is bringing change. Change in funding mechanisms; change in approach; change in project management. As we implement this change, the Scottish Government is committed to investing in a strong, sustainable railway that meets future demand.
This coming rail control period we will not only build on our significant track record of investment in Scotland’s Railway, we will also progress identified programmes in the next five years which aim to support longer-term capacity needs. We want to take the industry with us as we implement the ‘pipeline-based approach’ to rail project development and delivery. Central to this will be an integrated, cross-organisational partnership approach.
