Developing rail schemes

Developing rail schemes

For any organisation outside of the rail industry, developing new rail schemes can often be a lengthy, and sometime frustrating process, challenged by technical details and rail stakeholder politics.

Even when a new scheme is well received through the early stages of development, there are many details which require continuing attention to ensure its fit within the constantly evolving railways: from design, infrastructure and safety through to train services and the passenger offer; from commercial and funding structures to contractor procurement and management.

Practical solutions

At SLC Rail we have extensive experience of developing successful schemes, focusing on technical feasibility from the outset and drawing on our knowledge, industry relationships and reputation to negotiate a path through stakeholder politics.

Our team of rail professionals brings a broad set of skills and a clear understanding of train service operations and working practices. With our collective experience from across the railways, the construction industry and government we can help you fully understand the implications of your proposed scheme and manage both stakeholders and operational factors to maximise its benefits.

We are committed to providing the best advice, not least informing you early on if we consider that a particular scheme or approach may not be viable. We will help you prioritise your rail investments and take forward robust, properly planned and economically justified schemes for approval and funding.
