ABSTRACT
This article reports that Great Britain rail regulator Tom Winsor is to press ahead with enforcement action against the Railtrack PLC over the upgrade to the West Coast Main Line following the company's refusal to agree a modified enforcement order. Tom Winsor believes that to meet the planing needs of train operators and funders, the company should be providing credible plans and other information in a timely manner. He has also set out intended performance targets for the company for the period 2000-2001. The company will be expected to achieve a five percent performance improvement in minutes delay attributable to causes for which it is responsible, in addition to catching up any shortfall for the period 1999-2000.
