Leadership in the UK rail industry

This insight paper outlines the leadership challenge facing the UK rail sector in the current decade, drawing on both demand and supply side challenges with recommendations for the industry.

The central issue is a critical requirement for clarity on who leads the industry in defining its strategic aims, and how UK Government and unions should come together with a single clear strategy. This would enable the rail industry to deliver the outcomes required by customers and ensure continued growth required in a post-Brexit landscape.

It is principally aimed at government agencies and major rail infrastructure clients, to influence the bodies responsible for creating and shaping longer-term industrial policy within this sector.
