Railway Industry Association

1 min read

The Government has published the Call for Evidence for the Whole Industry Strategic Plan, the 30-year strategy for the rail industry.  It sets out the five long-term objectives for the industry:

  • Meeting customers’ needs
  • Delivering financial sustainability
  • Contributing to long-term economic growth
  • Levelling up and connectivity
  • Delivering environmental sustainability

Darren Caplan, Chief Executive of the Railway Industry Association (RIA), said: “It is positive to see the call for evidence now launched for a ‘Whole Industry Strategic Plan’, ahead of the restructure of UK rail to Great British Railways.

“A Plan that provides long-term certainty for businesses in rail will be vital in the coming years, to ensure the sector can deliver efficiently and effectively. RIA and our members look forward to working with the new GBR Transition Team to develop the Plan in the months ahead.”
