Decision:

Delegated approval to enter into a Two Party Underbridge Agreement with Network Rail pursuant to SCC Cabinet resolution of 15th May 2019 (reproduced below for ease of reference). The underbridge agreement is now agreed with Network Rail and SCC Legal Team and ready to be signed.

Alternative options considered:

A new underbridge is to be constructed under the cross-city railway line which will facilitate the construction of the final phase of the Lichfield Southern Bypass. The agreement provides:

a) Network Rail’s authority for the County to design and construct a new underbridge under the cross-city railway line for the final phase of the Lichfield Southern Bypass.
b) Network Rail’s agreement to maintain the new underbridge structure at the cost of the County, subject to the terms and conditions of the underbridge agreement, which reflects the statutory obligations and framework within which Network Rail is obliged to operate the Railway.
c) Network Rail’s obligation to dedicate the land beneath the new underbridge to the public highway.
