Investing in the industry
Investment is essential to cater for the growth in demand for both passenger and freight services. An effective framework for delivering infrastructure investments such as increasing track capacity or building new stations is required.
We have a role in making sure the investment infrastructures are in place, and once agreed, projects are delivered on time and budget.
Schemes are proposed by train operators, other rail users (in particular users of freight services) or funders of rail services. Others are identified by Network Rail in its new role of coordinating the development of Route Utilisation Strategies for the railway network.
Network Rail also takes the lead in promoting, planning, facilitating and, in most cases, delivering and financing schemes.
Anyone with questions concerning the investment framework can contact Chris Littlewood (email@example.com or 0207 282 2195).
