Annual assessment of Network Rail


This document is part of how we hold Network Rail to account. 

It sets out our views on Network Rail's delivery to its wide range of stakeholders within its regions and functions, highlighting any current and forthcoming risks as well as other areas of concern.

The annual assessment of Network Rail was previously known as the ORR's Network Rail Monitor. A glossary providing all details of the terms used is available.

The annual assessment is published once a year in the summer. In the autumn we provide an interim assessment in the form of targeted letters to Network Rail addressing specific issues of concern.
