The Business Case is submitted to the North East Joint Transport Consultative Committee, and according to Northumberland Gazette Report (15th September 2020 online version – see here), receives cross party support. A welcome new development is the aspiration for the Northumberland Line to be included in the Metro fares zones structure. Following JTC approval, the business case will now be submitted to the Rail Investment Board, and if approved by this body, to the Treasury for funding approval.
