"North West & Central (NW&C) is the ‘Backbone of Britain’ – the economic spine linking our main cities. We connect workers with jobs, people with loved ones and goods to market."
Tim Shoveller, Managing Director, Network Rail, North West & Central Region
Putting Passengers First
We run the company through 14 devolved route businesses supported by five Network Rail Regions, each led by a Managing Director and a senior leadership team who are accountable for effectively and efficiently delivering for customers and key stakeholders.
These businesses operate, maintain and renew infrastructure to deliver a safe and reliable railway for passengers and freight customers and are responsible for operations, maintenance and minor renewals, including the day-to-day delivery of train performance and the relationship with their local train operating companies.
Our regions encompass multiple routes and transport hubs to better align operations with passengers’ and communities’ needs and the outcomes are made visible through route and customer scorecards.
