The Great North Western Railway application for Euston to Blackpool services has been approved by the ORR. It's hoped to commence services using released ECML class 91s plus 6 Mk IV coaches next May.

Will NR revise linespeeds to allow 125mph running without TPWS equipment on the straighter sections of track?

There are fewer intermediate stops than applied for so that the cl 91s can be fitted in between the Voyagers/Pendolinos. It's likely that the speeds for "ordinary" trains in the Distance Charts will apply i.e max of 110 mph.
