This review was undertaken prior to the significant outbreak of Covid-19 in the United Kingdom. It is therefore a snapshot in time generating conclusions and recommendations which will be more relevant when Network Rail and the industry returns to a status of normality. For this reason it is considered the review and its conclusions are still valid. ORR's expectations are that Network Rail plans and ORR recommendations should be implemented, as part of Covid-19 recovery planning.
