Network Rail Telecom

NRT diagramNetwork Rail Telecom (NRT) is the company’s national, telecoms asset management function. NRT owns all of the company’s telecoms assets. Close to 20,000km of fibre-optic cable (the UK’s third largest network), backed up by 18,000km of hard cable and 2,500 masts, provide state-of-the-art communication services for the whole railway network.

Apart from the technical challenges that an operational railway presents to the telecommunications equipment, it also makes it a challenging environment to build and maintain the valuable assets.

So, the way the construction activities are managed takes on even greater significance and last year NRT issued a set of documents intended to help everyone comply with the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations of 2015. Now, almost a year on, the original documents have been revised in the light of the experience gained and two significant additions have even been made as well.
