Major projects can be transformational on a local, regional or national scale, but require commitment, planning and investment in order to be successful. With the right strategic partnerships, the supply chain can enable successful delivery and innovation, as it has already proven on many significant projects. However, strong leadership and a commitment to agreed outcomes is needed to bring certainty to the supply chain, increasing efficiency and productivity.

RIA has continuously pushed for greater clarity and the publishing of the Rail Network Enhancement Pipeline (RNEP), which was last published in 2019. RIA’s own RNEP was published in 2022, to provide understanding to its members. RIA will continue to highlight the need for a clear and visible pipeline for major projects around the UK.

For views on specific major projects needed, see HS2 & Network North.
