The railway is vital to Britain’s future economic success. That’s why Network Rail manages more engineering projects and employs more specialists than other UK organisations. Our work programme for the next five years will have major benefits for the whole country.
Our award-winning architectural developments are helping to regenerate towns and businesses, and we’re connecting communities with new train lines. We’re adding these to the 15,795 kilometres of rail, 2,515 stations, 32,000 viaducts, bridges and tunnels and 9,000 level crossings that we already look after.
The breadth and depth of our work
We are one of the largest land and property owners in the country. We manage 18 of the biggest stations in Britain, transforming their hidden corners into thriving shops, cafés and bars. We are turning disused archways into new homes for start-ups and even rolling out our own click and collect service called Doddle. Meanwhile, our 17,000km-long fibre optic network powers our track-side signals, electrical systems and line-side telephones.
We have our own app store with new apps to collect and report real time data, and we are behind some of the most advanced technology in the country. Our technical team invented the use of HD cameras to analyse track conditions – these cameras take 70,000 images per second at speeds of 125mph, enabling us to identify wear-and-tear issues faster.
With incredibly varied opportunities to grow, develop and take your career wherever you want it to, you’ll be able to explore the many parts of our organisation. We truly are a Network Unlimited.
