The power of industry-leading network resilience

Resilience is the ability to anticipate, absorb and adapt to the kinds of challenges and changes that can destabilise people, organisations or communities. As new rolling stock enters service across the UK’s rail networks there is increased demand for more energy-hungry trains running at increased frequency. This demand, alongside additional customer conveniences like air conditioning, longer trains, and more frequent services, is placing pressure on existing electrical infrastructure.

High Speed 1's powerful legacy

It has been 10 years since the opening of the entire length of High Speed 1, the UK's first high-speed railway. This has enabled passengers to travel up to 186 miles per hour from London St Pancras to Kent, Paris and Brussels, and has attracted at least £3.8 billion in economic and social benefits to Kent, London and the UK.
