A "considerable and positive improvement" in the perception of Network Rail among its suppliers has been reported by the organisation

According to the infrastructure group, increases were witnessed across its key performance indicators and within most other areas about which companies and partners were questioned.

The Supplier Perception Survey 2012 shows key suppliers in particular were more positive about Network Rail and wanted continued change within the body, including greater collaboration with other agencies.

A total of 70 senior executives were polled for the research and their responses will be used to inform future developments within the train network.

The number of dissatisfied suppliers declined from 16 per cent to six per cent this year, well within a target of 15 per cent and indicating a strengthening supply chain for Network Rail.

Network Rail is responsible for the management, maintenance and development of rail tracks, tunnels, bridges, 17 key stations, viaducts, level crossings and signalling across Britain.
