Stakeholder Perspectives: the West Coast Partnership

This latest report represents the findings of research collaboration between Greengauge 21 and stakeholder group West Coast Rail 250 (WCR250). The research examines the development potential for the West Coast corridor, identifying stakeholder needs and the opportunities that HS2 will bring from 2026/7 onwards, and is intended to help shape WCR250’s approach to (as yet) un-finalised aspects of HS2 such as the hub station at Crewe.

The report will inform WCR250’s stance on the upcoming West Coast Partnership – the combined intercity and HS2 franchise to be let by DfT, based on the prospectus issued by DfT in January 2017.

We intend to use the output from this work to help inform our planned update of the original national high-speed rail strategy document (Fast Forward).
