The Government is committed to transforming our railways and building on Keith Williams’ evidence-based priorities. We want to create a railway that puts passengers first, delivers better value for money and supports the nation’s recovery from Covid-19.

Covid-19 struck when the Williams Rail Review was in its final stages. The priorities that Keith set out remain the right ones; we are working with him now to consider how best to deliver reform in light of these unique challenges.
