Network Rail is at the heart of revitalising Britain’s railway. From Crossrail – Europe’s largest civil engineering project – to investment in world-class stations and major programmes of electrification, we’re involved in some of the most ambitious and diverse ventures that this country has ever seen.

Britain’s railway has been growing for 150 years, without significant renewal. And yet it’s required to carry more freight and passengers than ever before. Investment and modernisation are absolutely essential. So we’re building the railway of the future. It’s a colossal challenge. And we’re relishing every moment.

We’ve already developed a world class reputation for taking care of our track – ours is one of the safest railways in Europe. Now, we’re on the way to becoming a world leader in asset management.

Our vision is Putting Passengers First – becoming a company that is on the side of passengers and freight users; that is easy to engage with and is an efficient and dependable partner; a company people are proud to work for; instinctively recognised as an industry leader.
