The UK Rail Market 2010

 

This latest edition of our popular survey of the UK rail market has been comprehensively updated and revised to reflect key policy initiatives announced by the Coalition Government that took office in May 2010, as well as other major industry developments.
 
It includes summarised details of the latest version of Network Rail’s spending plans up to 2014 and likely future developments and enhancements to the national network.
 
Also covered is an up-to-date overview of passenger rail franchises, including the latest traffic figures, non-franchised passenger operators and principal freight train operating companies. In addition, for the first time railways in Northern Ireland feature in the report.
 
The report provides data on Transport for London’s expenditure plans, together with status updates on key projects such as Crossrail. Operational and planned light rail and light metro systems in other cities are also covered.
 
Coverage of rolling stock procurement includes summaries of current vehicle purchasing programmes. The report is completed by a sector-by-sector guide to principal suppliers to the UK rail market.
 
Numerous useful links to websites and to key documents are provided, enabling users to research specialist topics more deeply. Fully updated, the report’s contents reflect the situation as at November 2010.
