Northern Trains Ltd (NTL) will develop a plan over the first 100 days of its operation. This will set out the initiatives and measures that NTL believes are needed to deliver the services that passengers deserve and will be presented to the Government. Once agreed, NTL will publish details of any initiatives and measures to be taken forward and, where appropriate, these will form part of a new Services Agreement between the Secretary of State and NTL. In the meantime, from 1 March NTL will continue to deliver the new trains and associated service improvements that are already underway.
