Rail Forum welcomes today’s announcement confirming the location of the future HQ of Great British Railways (GBR). Congratulations to Derby on their successful bid.
Britain’s railways are embarking on major reform that will transform the way in which the sector works in order to deliver a simpler, better railway for everyone.
GBR sought to locate their headquarters in a place with rich railway heritage, strong links to the national network and significant public support, and Derby certainly meets the criteria.
Elaine Clark, CEO of Rail Forum said: “All of the finalists were strong contenders to be the home of GBR and Rail Forum would like to commend each of the locations on the quality of their bids. GBR will be the guiding mind and set the strategic direction for the future of Britain’s railways. Derby is an excellent location for the HQ and we look forward to continuing to develop our relationship with GBRTT, for the benefit of all our members across the whole of the UK.”
