type Press release

Commenting on the Rail Regulator’s Interim Review document published earlier today, ATOC Director General, George Muir, said: "Britain's railway are one of the fastest growing railways in Europe, and the network needs more money.

"How much Network Rail should get to spend on the network is a tough decision for Tom Winsor. He has to balance the need for investment with what the country can afford, but we think he has made the right decision.

"And it is going to be very tough indeed for Network Rail because Tom Winsor has allocated less than they say they need, but I thinkgood railway engineering, and there are good engineers in Network Rail, they can do it."
