Williams-Shapps Plan for Rail consultation is at halfway point

A consultation in to the Government’s sweeping reforms for rail is at the halfway point.

The consultation, which started on 9 June, looks at the legislative elements of the Williams-Shapps Plan for Rail. The legislation is required to deliver key elements of structural reform.

Some areas do not require primary legislation — such as innovation, local partnerships, and the 30 Year Industry Strategy.


The consultation looks at:

  • core functions and duties of Great British Railways
  • new governance framework
  • reform of wider industry structures and processes

The consultation finishes on 4 August.
