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.
