I think Water Orton resignalling took most of the Camp Hill to Lifford so Id assume that going to Kings Norton infers that. Redditch is also bound to go over too.

Wouldn't doubt that the Redditch is included for a minute - it seems to be endemic just to bung documentation through a spellchecker before publication rather than read through it to make sure it makes sense, is in proper English and is not capable of mis-interpretation.
The SA doesn't make it clear how far West Midlands SCC takes, but the re-control area surely could have been defined as Church Road to Redditch. The letter actually refers to Birmingham New St at one point and Five Ways at another.

There is an awful lot of a Network Change that you dont see as I expect you are well aware. The rest of the documentation goes into a lot more detail. The letter is only put up there as a regulatory requirement and even that bit is abridged slightly.

It seems a rather bonkers regulatory requirement, as there is almost no information in them to allow anyone who hasn't received the full version, complete with appendix A, to comment sensibly.

Unless you have a track access contract or a major interested party such as a PTE, DfT, ORR etc... you can't comment or object anyway.

Moderator Comment: As this is supposed to be a railway signalling forum please stick to the subject in hand and don't digress into a general discussion into regulatory processes.

Thanks - it was only yesterday it occurred to me to wonder if there was going to be a separate loop to hold freights waiting a banker or if they would stand on the outermost platform.
;
Here we go again, though, spoiling the ship for a ha'porth of tar. I would have thought it worth providing bi-di through p.3 to maintain flexibility while freights were waiting a banker in P.1, if not all the way to Blackwell to pass anything struggling.
( I appreciate there aren't many at present but I can see that changing if ATW get sufficiently p..... off by freights coming to grief on the marches or a change of operator).

Would cost a fortune for not a lot of use, would never wash its face in a business case.

There appears to be no facility to cross a train from the down to the up via the loco siding at Blackwell - is that the case currently?

This is quite correct. There is no signalled move from the Down Main to Up Main via the layby siding.

Is there a new date for resignalling. This half-term had been mentioned, but this isn't happening. I can't see anything in the engineering access statement for it - in fact the whole route seems to have disappeared, I am guessing the zone boundary will move to Eckington and it has been deleted by Western and not yet published by LNW, although that isn't reflected in the standard possession opportunity pages?
;
If so is the Worcester area moving too, or will trains go in and out of Western?

Won't be this year from what I hear. Worcester stays in Western, the boundary is just on the other side of Abbotswood and Stoke Works.
