Delivering future requirements Expenditure The age of rail and sleepers on the route is amongst the highest on the national network and varies between 30 and 40 years old and to address this we are implementing a track renewals strategy which matches the traffic usage of the route. This will include the deployment of Network Rail’s High Output equipment on the most intensely used part of the route, between Reading and Exeter, to deliver a higher track quality with absolute minimum rail failures; more conventional targeted renewals

will be carried out on the less intensely used sections beyond Exeter, with patch repairs and renewals to maintain stable infrastructure on the more rural branch lines.

Figure 14 shows the planned level of expenditure on renewals on this route over the next two years. However, the precise timing and scope of renewals remains subject to review to enable us to meet our overall obligations as efficiently as possible consistent with the reasonable requirements of operators and other stakeholders.
