Confessions Of A Project Manager

Well, the September update to Network Rail's CP5 Enhancements Delivery Plan is out at last.  Have they owned up?  Yes, sort of.

Phase 2 (a) and (b) still shows a completion date of December 2014.  Phase 2 (c) also shows December 2014, with the added note "(Will be missed.)".  This is then followed by another Phase 2(c) entry in the table, showing a completion of April 2015.

So, do we think (a) and (b), that is Edge Hill to Earlestown and Huyton to Wigan will be ready this year?  Is it going to be another 30th December job like phase 1 was?

No other future dates seem to have moved, although I was pleased to note the completion date for Phase 1 is now shown as August 2014.
