Our railway lines are the economic arteries of our nation where every day, more than 4.6 million journeys are made in the UK. Network Rail owns, operates and develops Britain’s railway infrastructure – that’s 20,000 miles of track, 30,000 bridges, tunnels and viaducts, and thousands of signals, level crossings and stations. Our role is to deliver a safe and reliable railway for Britain.
The number of passenger journeys undertaken on Britain’s railways has doubled over the past 20 years. We help the railway network to grow and improve in response to that tremendous growth and demand – and our apprentices are at the heart of that work.
Network Rail is investing more in engineering projects than any other UK organisation.
We carefully manage and deliver thousands of projects every year as part of the multi-billion-pound Railway Upgrade Plan – it’s an exciting place to be and offers real opportunity to make a difference through contributing to the biggest transformation project on the rail network since the change from coal to diesel.
