The UK rail industry is critical to the economy’s success. But, more than that, improving the rail network across the UK is key to ensuring a successful outcome.
Over the last 25 years, passenger volumes have more than doubled. Since privatisation, freight volume has increased by a third, with the estimated amount of goods carried by the UK railway network over £30 billion annually.
On track for success
More recently, the HS2 rail line will see many workers deliver on one of the most significant rail projects in recent times, and work is already underway. For scale, the HS2 railway will serve around 300,000 per day.
These projects are not without risk, and the Rail sector is one of the most high-risk areas of work in the UK. So ensuring the workforce carrying out the critical design, build, and maintenance of the network are safe is vital for Citrus Training and the delegates we teach, equipping them with the skills and qualifications to ensure the sectors’ success.
