About Network Rail

Network Rail is revitalising Britain's railway. We're making the rail safer, more reliable and more efficient than ever before. It's a real team effort. One which calls for the collaboration of the industry's finest professionals. Together, we are crafting a railway fit for the future.

The Western route incorporates the core stations at either end of the Great Western Mainline - London Paddington and Bristol Temple Meads, which we own and run. The main challenge for us is to provide enough capacity on the railway at peak times for growing numbers of passengers to and from London, as well as Reading, Oxford, Bristol and Exeter. Demand for Freight is also growing.
