I have received a reply to my FOI request about the removal of the easement allowing doubling back between Motherwell & Glasgow

Reply from DfT

Dear Mr Richards


Thank you for your information request of May 8 our reference F00088887.
You requested the following information:
"The following easement was withdrawn from the National Routeing
Guide in the list of easements dated 3 April 2012.
25 Ticketholders travelling from Carlisle or Newcastle or stations
south of Carlisle or Newcastle to stations between Motherwell and
Glasgow may double back via Glasgow Central. This easement applies
in both directions.
As changes can only be made to the National Routeing Guide with the
consent of the Authority according to the Ticketing & Settlement
Agreement (see below)..................


..............Having spoken with ATOC I can confirm that the double back remains valid, The
easement needed to be removed from the electronic guide temporarily and has
now been fully tested in connection with changes necessary to enable mapping
of route permissions to become available in the guide. The easement will
reappear on the website, with a new reference when the next update occurs in a
couple of weeks. The easement still allows the double back as per the original
but will now be able to be represented properly in the Journey Planner and the
Mapping applications.................
I wonder why they had to consult ATOC , as legally they had to approve the change, and surely before agreeing to it they would have asked why? :)

Probably it was done by mistake and the reply is a load of bull**it

bull**it indeed.

There is absolutely no need to remove simple text from something which is basically a Word document whilst you test a new/changed guide.
