"As you are aware, we are currently assessing three potentially competing applications for track access rights on the East Coast Main Line. To inform this assessment, we commissioned consultants, ARUP, to undertake a cost benefit appraisal of the three applications. Concurrently, Network Rail has been assessing the availability of capacity for the rights sought by each of the applicants, both singularly and in combination. I enclose copies of Network Rail's Draft Final Report and ARUP's Draft Final Report
Can I stress that we are sending you a near complete version of the ARUP report with only information taken directly from Grand Central's business case redacted. It still contains commercially sensitive information and we are sending it to you on the basis that this is kept strictly confidential to your Department. Should you wish to share it with any consultants working on your behalf, you may do so, but only if that is also on a strictly confidential basis, and only for the purpose of responding to us."
