RSG Coronavirus Taskforce provides update on its Act Now priorities

Setting out the next steps to support the rail supply chain’s recovery

Today, the Rail Supply Group (RSG) – the leadership body for the UK rail supply chain – has provided an update on its three Act Now priorities which will support the rail supply chain’s COVID-19 recovery.

In July this year, having been invited by Government to form a Coronavirus Taskforce, the RSG published its Act Now report following a comprehensive independent survey into the impact of coronavirus on businesses supplying the rail industry.

Three priorities were identified – which will also see elements of the Rail Sector Deal being adapted and accelerated in response to these industry needs – with significant progress being made over the last four months:

  1. Improve work pipeline visibility
  2. Simplify data access
  3. Change railway access arrangements
