RDG responds to government plans to bring track and train operations closer together

Rail Delivery Group chief executive Paul Plummer has responded to the government's announcement of plans to bring track and train operations closer together.

Paul Plummer said:

"Everyone in the railway wants to transform services for our customers, including better reliability. The Secretary of State is setting out a positive vision that we can all support, and one that together we want to make work. We need to ensure that every part of our railway is more joined-up and working closer together – one railway pulling in the same direction.

“Effectively-managed teams focussed on the same objectives will resolve problems and make progress more quickly. We will work with the government to make sure that we meet customers’ needs and expectations, finding new ways of working and new sources of investment for vital improvements as we build the bigger, better railway that Britain needs.”
