Network Rail group finance director to join Go-Ahead Group
Mark Carne, Network Rail chief executive, said: “On behalf of Network Rail colleagues, I would like to thank Patrick for his service to our company over seven years. I personally want to thank him for his untiring support to me and for helping us to successfully navigate the transition into the public sector last year.”
Network Rail owns, manages and develops Britain’s railway – the 20,000 miles of track, 40,000 bridges and viaducts, and the thousands of signals, level crossings and stations (the largest of which we also run). In partnership with train operators we help people take more than 1.6bn journeys by rail every year - double the number of 1996 - and move hundreds of millions of tonnes of freight, saving almost 8m lorry journeys. We’re investing ?38bn in the railway by 2019 to deliver more frequent, more reliable, safer services and brighter and better stations.
