Speaking about the opening of Network Rail's new road/rail hub at Ryton in Warwickshire, the head of the company's National Delivery Service said:
"Network Rail's first preference is to transport goods by rail. This is not always the right solution so we have an extensive road fleet to transport goods and equipment to our work sites and depots.
By bringing the logistics for this together at Ryton we can offer a more effective and efficient service for Network Rail. This will mean reduced costs and faster turnaround times when we do work on the railway."
