Network Rail is responsible for managing a large number of station rebuilding projects. The scope and scale of these works vary from relatively minor works to very large scale projects such as London King’s Cross or Birmingham New Street. The amount of assessment will similarly vary depending upon the scale of the project concerned. For the larger schemes it is usual for the Department for Transport to appoint a scheme sponsor. These sponsors are in regular contact with Network Rail to undertake assurance activity around delivery.

In addition the Office of Rail Regulation undertakes regular reviews of Network Rail’s delivery against its Business Plan commitments, and this will include station rebuilding projects.
