Transport Select Committee to scrutinise rail safety

The House of Commons Transport Select Committee (TSC) is to hold an inquiry into railway safety, following previous investigations into safety at level crossings and security on the railway.

MPs will examine the effectiveness of the current system of management, investigation, enforcement and policing in ensuring the safety of passengers, staff and the public.

The TSC says it is particularly interested in progress made by the Department for Transport (DfT) and Network Rail on implementing previous recommendations on level crosssings, and in the DfT, British Transport Police and British Transport Police Authority’s progress in implementing recommendations made on security and measures to reduce violent crime.

  • For more on this, including what else the TSC will investigate, read RAIL 810, published on September 28.
