Network Rail owns and operates most of Britain’s railway infrastructure, including tracks, signals, tunnels, bridges, viaducts and level crossings. We also manage rail timetabling and 18 of the largest stations in England, Scotland and Wales.
Our aim is to provide a safe, reliable and efficient railway for passengers and freight trains.
Every day, more than 4.8 million journeys are made in the UK. People depend on Britain’s railway for their daily commute, to visit friends and loved ones and to get them home safe every day. Our role is to deliver a safe and reliable railway, so we carefully manage and deliver thousands of projects every year that form part of the multi-billion pound Railway Upgrade Plan, to grow and expand the nation’s railway network to respond to the tremendous growth and demand the railway has experienced – a doubling of passenger journeys over the past 20 years.
