Network Rail has today published new and updated information on its online transparency portal. Transparency is a key theme within Network Rail’s five-year strategic business plan. We believe that being more open and accessible will make Network Rail more accountable to the travelling public, taxpayers and politicians.
Mark Farrow, head of transparency for Network Rail, said: “We’re continuing to publish more information as part of our commitment to being more open and transparent. Our aim is to make it easier for people to understand what we do, how we do it and why. “We know that being more transparent will help us improve public understanding of our role in the rail industry, the challenges we face and what we’re doing to meet them. We want to get more people engaged in our work so that they understand us better and can help us improve. “We recognise that there is always more to be done, so we are committed to making transparency part of everything we do at Network Rail.”
