Efficient expenditure workshop

On this page you will find the agenda and the presentation slides of the PR13 efficient expenditure workshop held on 21 September 2012 and details of a subsequent workshop held on 26 October 2012.

On 26 July 2011 we published a consultation on establishing Network Rail's efficient expenditure, which closed on 14 October 2011. The purpose of the document was to explain our approach to establishing the level of efficient expenditure for Network Rail in CP5, including the methods we intended to use, the range of studies we intended to undertake and the work Network Rail would do itself.

The consultation covered topics including:

  • Support and operations expenditure
  • Enhancements expenditure
  • Maintenance and renewals expenditure
