Network Rail continues to prioritise transparency

28 May 2013/Categories: Industry News

Network Rail has added more up-to-date data to its website as it continues to strive for greater transparency.

The organisation is keen to ensure the public has as much information as possible on its budgets, performance and any upcoming projects.

Mark Farrow, Network Rail's head of transparency, said that adding new categories to the web portal will make the firm more accountable, which he feels is "good for business".

"We remain receptive to any requests for further information that can help individuals or organisations greater understand our business," he remarked.

Network Rail is involved in a number of high-profile schemes that will improve passenger and freight services up and down the UK and it is important that people are kept up to speed on the very latest developments.

Perhaps the most eagerly anticipated and challenging project is the introduction of the High Speed 2 rail network, which Network Rail hopes will take some of the strain off the West Coast Main Line.

The latter currently links the UK's biggest cities and carries more than a quarter of all rail freight, but parts of the line are expected to be full by the mid-2020s - hence the need for a new route.
