    Call for evidence to deepen understanding of the issues affecting the rail industry to inform Williams Rail Review.

The Williams Rail Review is looking to passenger groups, industry, businesses and freight users to gain a stronger understanding of key issues and challenges that the rail industry is facing. 

As a result, a new Call for Evidence has been issues that invites contributions inform review principles, including:

  • commercial models for the provision of rail services that priorities the interests of passengers and taxpayers
  • rail industry structures that promote clear accountability and effective joint-working for both passengers and the freight-sector
  • a system that is financially sustainable and able t address long-term cost pressures
  • a railway that is able to offer good value fares for passengers, while keeping costs down for taxpayers
  • improved industrial relations, to reduce disruption and improve reliability for passengers
  • a rail sector with the agility to respond to future challenges and opportunities

"The government's vision is to have a world-class railway, working as part of the wider transport network and delivering new opportunities across the nation."

The review's findings and recommendations will be published in a government white paper in autumn 2019, with reform of the sector to begin in 2020.

The call for evidence is open until 18 January 2019. You can access the call for evidence here.

techUK will be responding to the call for evidence. If you would like to add your voice to our response, please contact Jessica Russell.
