Points awarded if the combined authority has invested in new zero emission train stock.

Points awarded if the combined authority has provided funding for extensive retrofit or opening of new or reopening of any stations and/or train lines.

Clarifications

Zero emission train stock would include any trains that run via electric voltage or they are hydrogen powered.

Extensive retrofit (sometimes called deep retrofit) refers to significant works of size or scale that result in a fundamental change to the building structure and/or services.

Projects (reopenings/extensive retrofit/new train stock) which are due to happen will not be awarded points. The project must have occurred or be under way.
