Network Rail - Railhub Consultation

Our Ref: HSR/2/11

Head Office Circular: NP/448/21

10th December 2021

To: The Secretary




Dear Colleague,




I have received a report from the Lead Officer noting the satisfactory conclusion of the national consultation.

The report noted that, whilst RMT is supportive of the introduction, we remain concerned over the workload of our Section Planner members, the necessity for ULR IT support, and consistent approach to route consultation.


The report also recommended that our concerns be communicated to the company with a request that someone from the central team attend route level consultation, and that arrangements be provided for ULR support on IT matters.


At its meeting on 9th December 2021, your National Executive Committee (NEC) resolved as follows:


We note the report from the Lead Officer and instruct the General Secretary to take up this item in line with the report.


This NEC commends our reps for their hard work.


Relevant Reps, Branches and Regional Councils to be informed.


I am acting in accordance with these instructions and will keep members advised of any developments.


Please bring the contents of this circular to the attention of relevant members.


Yours sincerely




Michael Lynch

General Secretary
