Network Rail is at the heart of revitalising Britain’s railway. From Crossrail – Europe’s largest civil engineering project – to investment in world-class stations and major programmes of electrification, we're involved in some of the most ambitious and diverse ventures that this country has ever seen.
Britain’s railway has been growing for 150 years, without significant renewal. And yet it’s required to carry more freight and passengers than ever before. We anticipate up to 400 million more passenger journeys by as soon as 2020. Investment and modernisation are absolutely essential.
So we’re building the railway of the future. It’s a colossal challenge. And we’re relishing every moment. We’re driven to delight our customers and help the economy thrive.
We’ve already developed a world class reputation for taking care of our track - ours is one of the safest railways in Europe. Now, we’re on the way to becoming a world leader in asset management.
These are a few of our largest current projects:
• Crossrail: a new cross-London service which will transform travel in the capital
• Birmingham New Street: a radical overhaul, which will spur significant regeneration
• Reading Station: redevelopment of the biggest bottle neck on the great Western Main Line
• The Electrification Spine: a new overhead electrification of four of our main routes
Naturally, we’re constantly seeking new talent to help us achieve our ambitious goals.
