Over recent years Network Rail has invested billions maintaining our network. Polling shows that the public consistently underestimate the cost of maintaining the network, which leads to a lack of trust.  This will show the public the true cost of maintaining vital infrastructure, breaking down spending by individual structures that make up our network.
 

Each autumn Network Rail undertakes a survey to measure satisfaction from its train operating and freight operating customers.  The survey is undertaken independently by a professional research company, with GfK currently contracted to provide this service.  Senior individuals that regularly interact with Network Rail from within these companies are invited to take part in the survey, which seeks feedback on a number of different delivery and relationship attributes. 

In 2014, 370 people were invited to take part with a total of 257 competing the survey, the vast majority of which were completed on line.

Energy Performance Certificate for The Quadrant:MK which centralises national operations for Network Rail.

The certificate shows the energy rating of the building from A to G, this indicates the energy efficiency of the building.

We want to reflect the communities that we serve. We can achieve this by creating an environment where our people fulfil their potential, through our being open, inclusive and respecting and promoting the diversity of our workforce. As we deliver greater diversity and inclusion we will become attractive to talented individuals, wherever they come from, whatever their background.

We are publishing our diversity and inclusion policy and strategy, and the diversity data about the composition of our workforce composition to illustrate our progress and some of the challenges in delivering a more open and inclusive company. To find out more about our equality and diversity agenda, please click on the link below.
 
Diversity and inclusion
 
We recognise that employees want to balance work and family life. This becomes particularly important at certain times, such as during pregnancy, when a child is born or adopted, during the early to young adult years of a child’s life, and where you have caring responsibilities for an adult eg an elderly relative.
 
Network Rail positively embraces flexible working. We recognise that employees may wish to balance work and family/home life. By offering flexible working arrangements we can support employees to manage their working life and other priorities, including looking after children, caring responsibilities, managing an impairment, religious observance, life-long learning, charity work and any other interests.

These documents are part of a suite of policies that specify the minimum standards we must adhere to when managing our information.
 

There are more than 6,100 level crossings on our rail network, with multiple crossing types at some sites. We have a legal duty to assess, manage and control the risk for every crossing.

Below is a link to our level crossing search which has details including a map, risk assessment and usage levels. You can also download the data as an Excel file.

Our aim is to provide more information about level crossings, the risks and how we manage them.

 

Our members hold our board to account for its leadership and management. The role of public members is similar to the role of shareholders in public limited companies except that public members have no financial interest in Network Rail.

Members do not have any financial or economic interest in the company, which means they do not receive dividends, share capital or any other form of payment from us, except for expenses.

Biographies, expenses and the members' expenses policy for our public members can be accessed by clicking on the link below.

On occasion we have to restrict the flow of road traffic in order to maintain, renew or extend the rail infrastructure. The number and type of these restrictions vary and range from lane closures for bridge inspections, to closures for bridge reconstruction or level crossing inspections. Restrictions can be an inconvenience to road users but all are necessary to the safe operation of the railway.

Network Rail now has a direct data feed of all its restrictions to the www.roadworks.org website and will include current and projected works through to 2017.

We strongly believe that when differences arise between us and our employees we achieve a resolution that is fair to both parties. Where possible and appropriate we seek to resolve any disputes outside the formal tribunal structure to minimise stress to our employees. Settlement agreements are a means by which Network Rail and departing employees can resolve a range of employment differences sensitively and properly.

This document contains information on the number of settlement agreements we concluded in 2014 and the total value of those payments.
 

We are a signatory to the Cabinet Office Procurement Pledge which calls on companies to implement a more streamlined procurement process that will ensure that all but the most complex procurements are completed within 120 working days from OJEU to contract award. We are committed to reducing our procurement cycle times to meet this target by introducing more efficient processes. As part of this commitment, we will publish our procurement cycle times periodically, showing the moving annual average at the end of each period for both complex and non-complex projects.

We want to ensure all employees understand the priorities of the business and are rewarded when the organisation is performing well in all areas.
