Network Rail


Projects to increase connectivity and capacity, including HS2 and the Northern Powerhouse rail link, will introduce a step-change in one of our oldest forms of public transport. As well as a long and proud heritage, the UK also has a dynamic rail future.

Our Rail group explores issues relating to the funding, design and delivery of our railways. Where possible we engage stakeholders in the rail sector – everyone from Network Rail, the ORR, Transport for London, train operators and the Department for Transport.

The group informs ACE’s thought-leadership in this area producing innovative yet tangible proposals to meet the needs of the UK’s rail sector, regularly responds to government consultations, holds events and writes articles for the trade press.

The group meets quarterly. Members include representatives of the following ACE member companies: AECOM, Alan Baxter, Amey, Arcadis, Arup, Cass Hayward, Fairhurst, GESL, PB World, Ramboll UK, Tony Gee and Turntown.

The Chair is Mike Brown of GESL.
