Fewer Network Rail ‘mega projects’ in CP6 Fewer Network Rail ‘mega projects’ in CP6

The first details of Network Rail’s Strategic Plan for the five years from 2019 have been revealed. The investment emphasis will be different, with fewer ‘mega projects’ such as London Bridge on the agenda in Control Period 6. The CP6 budget consists of £10.1 billion for enhancements (mostly continuing the projects started in CP5), £18.5 billion on operations and maintenance, and a further £18.5 billion on renewals. Outgoing chief executive Mark Carne has outlined some other priorities, which include ‘aligned objectives’ with train operators, bringing track and train closer together. Targets also include reducing train accident risk by 10 per cent and level crossing risk by 13 per cent.
