Submission to the National Infrastructure Commission Baseline Report call for evidence

7 February 2022

RIA has submitted a response to the National Infrastructure Commission's call for evidence on its Baseline Report.

Executive Summary

The response sets out that the National Infrastructure Commission should:

  • Retain a long-term approach including timelines for full NPR and HS2 Eastern Leg investment.
  • Recognise the full value of rail as a national transport asset with the potential to address a number of the Commission's challenges including zero carbon, digital transformation and levelling up.
  • Include rail fares and other incentives in wider consideration of demand management in order to maximise the benefits and attract more passengers to use the railways.
  • Encourage rail clients and the Infrastructure Bank to consider new models to support private funding and finance in rail.
