Office of Rail and Road

Public Sector and Government
Transport and Rail

We protect the interests of rail and road users. We are improving the safety, value and performance of railways and roads, today and in the future.

Our railway health, safety, economic and road functions overall are driven by UK legislation. We are accountable to Parliament and the public to protect the people who use, interact or work on the railway; ensure fair access to a rail network which is becoming increasingly congested; ensure National Highways delivers its major programme of investment and other performance commitments; and protect the interests of future users by working with the industry and funders as they develop the network of tomorrow.
