Rail safety inquiry


The purpose of this inquiry is to examine safety and security of the rail network as a whole and to follow up on inquiries by previous Committees on safety at level crossings (March 2014) and security on the railway (November 2014). The Transport Committee is interested in the effectiveness of the current system of management, investigation, regulation, enforcement and policing in ensuring the safety of passengers, workers and the public. The inquiry also looks at specific measures which could improve rail safety.
