David Waboso, Managing Director, Group Digital Railway, Network Rail

The whole of the rail industry has a part to play in delivering a successful step-change to a more digital railway – from taking the big strategic choices about the best way it can support economic growth in an affordable way, to attracting and developing new skills in the workforce to help make it happen.

The Digital Railway programme coordinates this cross-industry transformation. It brings together industry leaders and governing bodies; and is led by the Advisory Group that informs and sets the programme’s direction. David Waboso will discuss the role of the Digital Railway and its aims, and the parts the public and private sector have to play.
