About Network Rail

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.

Despite this, demand is still increasing and over the next 30 years passenger demand for rail will more than double with freight demand expected to grow by 140%. We're improving the rail network, providing faster, more frequent and more reliable journeys between Britain's towns and cities. This is bringing people and businesses closer together, making Britain more competitive and a better place to do business. This provides wider benefits to the economy; rail investment stimulates private sector growth, and we are investing in our workforce and introducing new technologies.
