The plan will be continually revised in consultation with our industry partners and in March 2009 we will publish our final plan for the next five years.
This will set out what needs to be delivered to allow the railway to grow and thrive, and will outline plans to deal with some of the most pressing challenges for the period 2009 to 2014.
The Strategic Business Plan was published against a background of strong growth, improving safety and sustained improvements across the whole industry.
