Network Rail Route Businesses E&W plans, operates and maintains the railway day-to-day.
London North Western (LNW), the largest of Network Rail's route businesses, is the 'Backbone of Britain' - the economic spine connecting our main cities. Our infrastructure runs from London Euston and Marylebone in the South through the Chiltern and West Midlands regions, the North West of England and Cumbria before joining with Scotland at Gretna. We are home to the West Coast Mainline, the busiest mixed-use railway in Europe, serving London, Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool, Edinburgh and Glasgow.
LNW's vision for the five years to 2024 is 'One team safely delivering excellent services to customers and taxpayers.' We will achieve this vision by embedding a safe, caring workforce culture that welcomes everyone and embraces new ideas and fresh thinking. By becoming a more open, diverse and inclusive organisation we can deliver a safe, accessible railway for everyone. We're working hard to ensure our workforce better represents our customers and society as a whole.
As well as keeping the network running safely day to day, we are also focused on the need to build a bigger, better railway capable of transporting more people and produce in future. Major railway upgrade schemes on LNW include HS2, East West Rail and the Great North Rail Project. Between 2019 and 2024 we also have a '5.3bn plan for vital maintenance, asset renewals and operations.
