Project outline

The Digital Railway Programme initiate each of the digital projects across the UK. This includes seeking business case approval from the Treasury, procurement events, ongoing provision of expert guidance where required and ensuring lessons learnt and best practice are shared across the portfolio.

Since May 2017, Mercury3 has provided a range of resources with previous Digital Railway experience (e.g. on Cambrian or East Coast) as the project has evolved, including: engineering manager, programme manager, project interface lead, project manager and planner and business change and operations specialists. These individuals have embedded with the Network Rail staff to form a truly collaborative team, despite being geographically dispersed.

Key activities delivered, or ongoing by this team:

Development and submission of Strategic and Outline Business Cases; and liaison with the DfT to support treasury submission.

Several large value procurement events (East Coast and TRU)

Early engagement of supply chain, utilising a collaborative model.

Established cross-industry working and steering groups.
