Representing companies with relevant experience and an interest in high speed rail, High Speed Rail Industry Leaders is committed to supporting the successful delivery of a world-class high speed rail network in Britain. Our members have helped deliver major infrastructure projects in the UK and around the world, ranging from creating entirely new high speed networks through to maintaining and improving the UK’s existing rail network. This gives us a unique insight into both the shortcomings in the current network, and the transformative capacity and connectivity benefits that high speed rail can bring.

Our unique set of expertise in engineering, operations, funding and regulation gives us the experience to ensure the extension of the high speed rail network leaves a lasting legacy for the UK.

The company’s principal object is: “to support, promote and champion the development of high-speed rail in Great Britain”. In bringing together companies in the UK, HSRIL creates a UK centre of excellence in high-speed rail in order:

  1. To complement the work of HS2 Ltd by bringing together expertise in engineering, operations, funding and regulation to think ahead on delivery issues;
  2. To carry out the research and planning needed to ensure that the wider network opportunities created by Government’s commitment to high-speed rail are identified and become part of Government policy.
