RC10 Large Cover


Welcome to the summer edition of RailCONNECT, a triannual publication available online and in print format. We hope all of our readers are finding this publication a useful industry communication tool, to bridge the gap between buyers and suppliers in the rail industry.

In this edition, Christian Wolmar reports on ‘the miracle of Dawlish’, and how two months after TV images of the track hanging by a thread filled our living rooms, the line is now fully back up and running. Sarah Reeves, Consultant at Transport Research Laboratory, discusses how failing to properly consider climate change resilience can lead to further expensive infrastructure failure and disruption across the network.

Deborah Ramshaw, Director at Bond Dickinson, provides us with our regular law feature, looking at ‘the new procurement directive and its implications for TOCs.’ David Hawkins from the Institute for Collaborative Working and Mike Pollard, Network Rail Head of Collaborative working, report on the progress of collaboration at Network Rail.

Christian continues, giving us an update on Crossrail as it nears completion, highlighting the recent decision on rolling stock and its benefits for the UK. In addition, Christian reviews the growth of electrification and how the UK is finally competing with the rest of Europe, with several new projects under way or in the pipeline.

We also have further features along with latest industry news and a selection of key dates for your diary within our diary of events.
