Developing a Sustainable Stations Framework

Leave a comment

There are over 2,500 stations on the rail network in Great Britain, which are maintained, enhanced or renewed at a very high cost. However, there exists no holistic framework to evaluate investment decisions on railway stations and to ensure that they provide value for money. This project seeks to address this gap by developing a framework which will include a set of factors, provide key metrics for these factors and a categorisation of the stations based on this framework.

Funding available: £150,000

Deadline for proposals: 7 Oct 2015
