Network Rail

Why choose us?

We have big plans for the railway – and for our people

The railway is vital to Britain’s future economic success.That’s why Network Rail manages more engineering projects and employs more specialists than other UK organisations.Our work programme for the next five years will have major benefits for the whole country.

Our award-winning architectural developments are helping to regenerate towns and businesses, and we’re connecting communities with new train lines.We’re adding these to the 15,795 kilometres of rail, 2,515 stations, 32,000 viaducts, bridges and tunnels and 9,000 level crossings that we already look after.

Since we took over the network in October 2002, we’ve already helped trains run more punctually, safely and frequently than ever before.We’ve reduced costs by nearly a third, while running nearly 30% more trains each weekday.
