We regulate Network Rail including setting the targets it has to achieve and report regularly on its performance. We regulate health and safety standards and compliance across the whole rail industry. We also oversee competition and consumer rights issues – driving a better deal for rail passengers and taxpayers. We also regulate the HighSpeed1 link to the channel tunnel.
Since April 2015, we’ve been monitoring National Highways (formerly Highways England) to hold the company to account on its commitments to improve performance and efficiency of England’s Strategic Road Network.
