Additionally, STARC is involved in numerous projects to enable works to be completed to make the railway a cleaner, quieter and greener environment. Giving future generations an improved service on the infrastructure whilst creating a more sustainable rail network. Such activities include enabling works for electrification of lines for the new rolling stock and the realignment of tracks for a more efficient service.
STARC continues to evolve and enhance its capabilities and services parallel with advances and innovations in the rail industry in Quality, Safety and Environmental issue.
With the fastest growing rail network in Europe, the UK is at the forefront of innovative projects to help reduce carbon emissions, increase capacity and improved the efficiency of trains.
STARC is proud to be playing a key role in aiding the delivery of these works and consequently building a cleaner environment for future generations to enjoy.
Many of the works STARC is undertaking across the network directly assist in the facilitation of the current upgrade from diesel rolling stock to new cleaner, faster and more efficient electrified trains. With a projected 14% increase in passenger demand over the next 5 years, the new rolling stock will not only provide the extra space required but also make travelling by rail even greener than before.
