This year has marked another huge year for the UK rail industry. Billions of pounds of investment has been announced as we head towards CP6 in April 2019, new innovation released to revolutionise how the railways are operated and a huge focus on accessibility which has transformed stations across the country.
As we head into the new year, we see significant levels of investment in rolling stock in action as dozens of TOCs release their new trains onto the railway, and as I write this, Network Rail announces the contractors that have landed Network Rail’s CP6 contracts.
Rail Business Daily, (RBD) was created to address the balance of rail related news. Despite the negative media, here at RBD we recognise that the biggest asset in UK Rail are our people and its your actions, projects and stories we want to celebrate.
It has been great working with businesses in various disciplines across the industry to showcase the great work they are doing, from contract wins through to CSR work which is making a huge difference in local communities. As we enter into 2019, we acknowledge that the review will be the catalyst for change and we look forward to promoting and celebrating your achievements.
The railbusinessdaily.com team has also been working hard behind the scenes this year, forging new partnerships to further make a difference in the rail industry and provide new opportunities. We will be making some announcements in the New Year with regards to those as we continue to develop what we offer. Ultimately, we aim to so our part in driving business and demonstrating the positive impact businesses are having on the rail industry, as well as getting the news you need to know first thing in the morning.
We’ve compiled a list of the top ten most viewed stories on the website and the most popular posts on Twitter and LinkedIn. All of our platforms do have different audiences with varying interests. Either way, this is a good reflection on the year that was 2018.
We look forward to speaking with you in 2019 and, in the meantime, all at the railbusinessdaily.com team wishes you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Remember, if your organisation has a story to share and celebrate, please let our editorial team know.
