Operators must pay £32.5m to run Great Western line
9:30am Saturday 5th October 2013 in News
First Group will have to pay £32.5m to continue to run the Great Western line, which connects Oxford with London and the south west, for two more years.
The figure has been revealed after it was confirmed a new agreement had been reached days on the line just days before the current deal was due to expire on October 12. The new deal commits the operator to £150m of extra costs every year, but will be renegotiated in 2016.
