Railway suppliers set out five key targets for GBR

The Railway Industry Association is setting out five ‘tests’ for the future organisation Great British Railways, which is currently being set up through a mobilisation team led by Network Rail chief executive Andrew Haines. RIA says its tests are intended to make sure that GBR will be able to make the most effective use of the rail supply chain. The aims are ‘no hiatus in current work’, transparency, a partnership between GBR and the private sector, productivity and ambition, and creating a positive legacy which includes safety, decarbonisation, exports and the economy. RIA chief executive Darren Caplan said: ‘The railway industry is currently undergoing a major restructure which could change the way we work both now and in the future. So, it’s important that we get Great British Railways right, ensuring that we can all continue to deliver for passengers, freight users and the economy. The Railway Industry Association’s five tests – informed and developed by RIA members – sets out what rail suppliers need to make the new structure a success.’
