To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what recent discussions he has had with Network Rail on improving rail signalling.

There have been no recent discussions with Network Rail specifically about signalling improvements. The Secretary of State and Ministerial colleagues will continue to meet with Network Rail to discuss a range of issues including improving rail signalling.
Network Rail is funded, as part of its five-year Control Period 5 settlement, to maintain and upgrade its signalling systems. The Office of Rail Regulation will monitor Network Rail’s performance in the delivery of its Control Period 5 objectives.
