Digital Railway - RDG welcomes Early Contractor Involvement Report

A new report which suggests that revolutionising the way the rail industry works with the supply chain could deliver big savings in the cost of digital technology has been welcomed by the Rail Delivery Group (RDG).

Paul Plummer, RDG chief executive, said:

“Everyone in the railway has a stake in making this cross-industry programme a success. Our ambitious plan for the digital railway will create much-needed extra capacity and improve performance on an increasingly full railway, providing more punctual, reliable and frequent trains on an even safer railway.

“Today’s report is an important step in ensuring that the whole industry and its suppliers collaborate efficiently and effectively to deliver the digital railway’s wide-ranging benefits, including better services for customers, more and better jobs for our people, and better value for taxpayers.”

The report Early Contractor Involvement Report: Delivering digital train control technology efficiently to drive capacity and performance on the railway is published on digitalrailway.co.uk.
