TransPennine Route Upgrade Assurance Reviews - Manchester Blockade

The challenge: Our specialist team was brought in to undertake the initial deliverability review for the multi-pound infrastructure programme. This project was implemented to improve connectivity in the North, supporting economic growth and delivering real benefits to the passengers and communities it serves.

Our solution: tusp conducted a subsequent deep dive review focusing on the staging and sequencing of work, float and contingency, engineering trains and strategic plant planning and risks, and QRSA outputs. 

The outcome: tusp provided strategic guidance report focussing on operational readiness, resilience plans, passenger handling, train planning/mitigations and contingency plans. We then took the lead on all stakeholder communication.
