Network Rail owns, operates, and develops Britain’s railway infrastructure; that’s 20,000 miles of track, 40,000 bridges, tunnels and viaducts and thousands of signals, level crossings and stations. We also manage rail timetabling and 19 of the largest stations in England, Scotland and Wales.
Every day, more than 4.6 million journeys are made in the UK. 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 and respond to the tremendous growth and demand the railway has experienced – a doubling of passenger journeys over the past 20 years.
We are building a better railway for a better Britain.
