Delivering an affordable, efficient railway
We don’t set fares – but we recognise the responsibility we have in investing taxpayer’s money into the railway.
That’s why the changes we’re making go hand in hand with being as efficient as possible in everything we do.
We will constantly challenge ourselves to make sure we get the maximum value out of every pound we spend.
A dependable partner
- That means being easier to work with for companies who have new or innovative ideas on how to improve the railway, and journeys for passengers.
- It means making it much simpler for companies to invest in railway improvements, delivering infrastructure in partnership more quickly and more efficiently.
- We’re implementing new streamlined processes and structures that make us more effective at what we do – less bloat, less red tape, more flexibility and immediacy in delivering improvements for passengers and freight users.
Embracing the cutting edge
We’re adopting the latest technologies and practices to speed up our work on and off the tracks – costing less time, costing less money and ultimately causing less delay and disruption.
Using train-borne track inspection (known as plain line pattern recognition) we can survey 2,000 miles of track in just one week!
That’s 10 times more efficient. Using this new technology and new process will save £23m over CP6.
