Network Rail has launched the second phase of its ten-year Network Operating Strategy, aimed at improving operations in the rail industry.
Also known as Net Ops 2, the strategy has been developed in partnership with operational colleagues from across the rail industry.
It sets out a series of recommendations on how to better enable operational teams to deliver improved train services for customers and passengers.
The document brings together operational views from across the industry into a set of clear improvement targets.
It focuses on three core areas for improvements; people, change and technology, and process.
In addition to those three priorities are a series of goals and actions that operational teams can take to help guide them in developing their operations models and structures.
Oliver Bratton, Director, Network Strategy & Operations, System Operator, said: “The strategy endorses the need for operations to develop its people, embrace change and new technologies that will enhance ways of working, and examine agile processes and opportunities through freight.
“It is critical, now more than ever, that we have a common vision for Operations which this strategy sets out to address”
