Britain’s railway must increase the speed at which research, and innovation is conducted and put into action to improve performance and reduce costs. This will be vital to attract customers back to the railway in the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic. The requirement to invest in forward–looking technical solutions from development to successful deployment is more prominent now than ever before.

Senior rail leaders from across the industry have reaffirmed their commitment for the shift needed in innovation set out in this latest edition of the Rail Technical Strategy (RTS).
