Specifically, interested parties are being asked to look for investment in three particular areas:
- Improvements to infrastructure to allow for faster journey times on the Great Eastern Mainline and West Anglia routes
- Additional track to the north of Chelmsford - ideally long passing loops parallel to the existing tracks in the vicinity of the proposed Beaulieu Park station
- Extension of the third track from Stratford to at least Angel Road and ideally Brimsdown on the West Anglia Route
As a contributor to the original prospectus the MRUA will be lobbying the Office of Rail Regulation (ORR) for the necessary investment to achieve these aims.
