BRITAIN’s infrastructure manager Network Rail has appointed Arcadis as a programme partner to support the implementation of its Digital Railway programme.

Arcadis will provide technical leadership, engineering management, project management, stakeholder engagement, risk management, business change, and industry training under the initial one-year contract, which can be extended by a year.

Arcadis will lead development of the Digital Railway toolkit, a set of requirements, specifications and processes which will support the roll-out of digital technologies on a number of routes.

“The Digital Railway is a natural evolution for the rail industry but it will have a revolutionary impact on the network by increasing capacity improving punctuality, safety and resilience, and significantly enhancing the passenger experience,” says Mr Chris Pike, British rail sector director at Arcadis.
