type Press release

Railtrack announced today that Simon Murray, Director of Major Projects and Investment, will be leaving the company by mutual agreement. Simon will step down from the board with immediate effect.

Simon Murray joined Railtrack in 1998 to oversee the construction of the Channel Tunnel Rail Link and the company's investment projects. During his period with the business Simon has been responsible for the delivery of major investment projects, including surfacing some difficult issues on the West Coast Main Line and Thameslink 2000 projects.

Following the establishment of the Enhancement and Major Projects Board, Chief Executive Steve Marshall will directly oversee the West Coast Main Line project, with General Manager Tony Fletcher reporting to him. In addition, Robbie Burns, Investment Director, who recently joined Railtrack from The Royal Engineers, will be responsible for the company's other construction projects, also reporting to Steve. Both Tony Fletcher and Robbie Burns will join the Enhancements and Major Projects board.

Commenting on Simon Murray's departure Chief Executive Steve Marshall said; 'Simon built a strong team of project managers within Railtrack and also established partnerships with the best programme managers from around the world. The requirements of the role have now moved on and he leaves the business much better able to deliver investment on the railway. We wish him well in the future '.

Simon Murray said of his departure; 'I have very much enjoyed my time working with Railtrack. The major projects team has achieved a lot, despite some enormous challenges and I believe that the timing is now right for me to leave Railtrack for a new challenge.'
