Train companies respond to ORR call for Network Rail to improve long distance performance29/05/2012
Responding to the ORR’s call for Network Rail to improve its long distance performance, Michael Roberts, Chief Executive of the Association of Train Operating Companies (ATOC) said:
“The regulator is right to take a firm line with Network Rail. The big problem for long distance rail passengers is lack of consistency in train service punctuality and Network Rail needs to do a better job of managing the track and signals to resolve this.
“Network Rail must now focus on implementing the recovery plans prepared with the help of train companies, closely watched and challenged by the ORR. It is in Network Rail’s hands to reduce or even avoid the pain of any fine and we hope this will incentivise the right response.”
