‘Radical’ Network Rail changes unveiled ‘Radical’ Network Rail changes unveiled

The new chief executive of Network Rail has revealed his plans for the organisation’s future, after a three-month period of consideration. Andrew Haines had already warned that railway operation was too far down Network Rail’s agenda, and Network Rail said the new plans involved ‘reorganising to put passengers and freight users first’. The key will be more devolution, with the creation of five new regions and 13 routes, rather than eight. The 13 routes will be responsible to five regional managing directors. NR said that the new regions would support the routes, ‘making us fleeter-of-foot’, as one insider described it to Railnews.
