The Williams Rail Review was tasked with bringing forward recommendations for root and branch change in the rail industry.

Keith Williams, its independent chair, and his team have been looking closely across the sector to ensure it works in the best interests of passengers and taxpayers. He has also been considering the railway’s wider social and economic benefits. A White Paper based on his recommendations will be published soon.
