I expect the next announcement will be that now he has a CBE he must deserve a pay rise.

Aren't most of the problems with the (franchised) operating companies, not Network Rail?

I think most of the issues with the franchised rail system is the franchising system, it's a mess.
It'd have been better if they just privatised it in the first place, not bid on how much they're going to give the government to run them.

The £820K current package is clearly too low. If we don't pay him more he might up-sticks and leave.  Wink

Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

Re: Network Rail boss Mark Carne rewarded with CBE

Surely the latest failures are the TOCs' and nothing to do with National Rail, whose job is to ensure that the national timetable for passenger, freight and any other type of traffic is workable. I'd think they would rightly leave it to the TOCs to ensure that sufficient resources were in place to manage the improvements.

However, if National Rail had signed off the revisions without checking their structural rigour,is another matter for review.

No one has to agree with my opinion, but in the time I have left a miracle would be nice.
