Digital Rail Futures


Our railway carries twice as many passengers as it did just two decades ago but demand is still set to rise dramatically in the years ahead.  Digital Railway is the industry’s plan to tackle the UK’s capacity crunch by accelerating the digital modernisation of the railway: It is the national initiative to bring these benefits to our railway within a generation.    Digital Rail


But as a country, we are facing a challenge in ensuring we have the right skills to deliver infrastructure projects both now and in the future. Currently around a quarter of the UK’s rail engineers are over 55 and are predicted to retire in the next ten years
