Brian Baverstock indicated that this would be considered at ARC to consider these risks in more detail. This would allow us to understand how the entities are managing these risks. Logically this would then feed back into risk management.


The Board approved the budget.

Richard Cairns also updated the Board on Alex Hynes, MD of Scotland’s Railway leaving and the arrangements put in place to cover his departure.

Richard indicated that most work would occur in workshops. Chair will keep the Board fully appraised.

The Board noted the update.
