Reflections on the UK rail industry from the outgoing Chief Executive of Network Rail
Accelerate: Rail 2018 – ‘CP6 is the best plan that Network Rail has ever put together, there is no doubt about that.’
UK rail is facing an uncertain and potentially turbulent future: the threat of nationalisation, changing customer expectations, connected transport on the horizon, the issue of capacity, and changing working models are just some of the issues rail stakeholders are grappling with. Is a revolution in structure necessary or would closer working models suffice? Hear Mark Carne, Chief Executive of Network Rail, offer answers to these difficult questions and explain how Network Rail is supporting continued and sustainable growth of the industry.
