The Department for Transport has made a Direct Award to London North Eastern Railway to continue to operate intercity rail services from London King’s Cross to the East Midlands, Yorkshire, the North East and Scotland. The Direct Award runs for 3 years with an available extension period of up to 26 rail periods (equivalent to 2 years).

This further direct award will enable LNER to continue delivering planned improvements for passengers, including completing the roll out of Azuma trains and a major timetable uplift that will increase the number of services on offer to passengers and improve journey times.

The Direct Award is in accordance with Article 5 (6) of Regulation 1370/2007 of the European Parliament and the Council 23 October 2007 on public passenger transport services.
