RIA's submission to the Williams Rail Review
21 January 2019
The Railway Industry Association (RIA) has published its response to the Williams Rail Review today. In its response, RIA calls for:
- Ending ‘boom and bust’ in rail funding, which can save up to 30% for work on the network, and a visible enhancements pipeline;
- Ensuring the Review does not throw the industry into stasis, with a loss of work momentum and uncertainty for the supply chain;
- Moving towards more ‘intelligent’ procurement and alliance-based approaches, to promote greater industry collaboration and deliver better value; and
- Developing even more innovative technologies and processes, and increasing collaboration across the rail industry.
