Railway Upgrade Plan update 2017 – 2018: Freight

Freight and National Passenger Operators

During 2016/17 Freight and National Passenger Operators (FNPO) was established as the company’s ninth operational route, to look after nationally focused customers whose interests extend across our geographical routes.

The delivery of safe, reliable and efficient operational freight performance is at the heart of our plans. In 2017/18 we will work collaboratively with the sector, including the National Freight Safety Group, to improve freight safety – including aiming to reduce the risks of derailments and signals passed at danger.
