About Network Rail
Britain relies on rail. We operate 20,000 miles of track, 40,000 bridges, tunnels and viaducts, 17 major stations, 8,200 commercial properties and 2,500 stations leased to train operators. Every day Network Rail gets 3 million people to their destination and thousands of tonnes of goods moved around the country. Rail is a greener and safer mode of transport so it's no surprise that our railway has seen passenger numbers increase more than 40% in the past decade alone. These numbers are expected to double by 2034. That means we have to run more trains, more often and more efficiently. And we need even more talented people on board to efficiently meet that challenge.
Our future is equally bright. We're in the midst of the largest expansion of our network since the railway boom of the 19th Century. This is one of the most exciting periods in the history of the railway. And you could be right at the heart of it.
