Before the launch of the CP7 procurement exercise for Phase 1, Network Rail wishes to engage with organisations that may be interested in participating in the forthcoming procurement exercise to explain the opportunity and detail of the procurement event.

CP7 covers the 5 year period from 1st April 2024 to 31st March 2029.

The North West & Central Region is formed of 3 routes, North West, Central and West Coast South.
