The small pool of this type of train is already being heavily used by other operators. We are able to hire one 12-carriage train from Southern. This means we are planning to lengthen to 12-carriages four services in the morning peak and four in the evening. We are finalising our timetable to ensure these longer trains go on the busiest services to address the most pressing capacity issues. They will run fast between St Albans and London St Pancras International There is a lot to do:Blackfriars: test and commission platform extensions, fit out, test and commission the south bank entrance; progressively open further facilities like the permanent ticket officeAt Farringdon: We have the platform extensions and integrated ticket hallAt W Hampstead, the new station entrance at Iverson RoadOperations we have driver training, new signal lay outs Testing trains in 12-cariage formation picture is our Dr Bob checking the stepping distances on the new platform at BlackfriarsMoving to further testing this summer as the infrastructure is completed.*The work has enabled NR to complete work and put major investment into stations, track and infrastructure.Will give us 24/7 services again* British Rail to March 1994; Railtrack to October 2002; Network Rail onwards. Revised from RSSB Annual Safety Performance Report (ASPR) 2008. Note that 2005-06 and 2008-09 are the only period in history where there have been 2 consecutive calendar years with no on-board fatalities from train accidents.Highlights for 2009: There were no passenger or workforce fatalities in train accidents - the fourth year in the last five with no such fatalities. Five passengers died in separate accidents. All occurred in stations. This is the same as in 2008, which was the lowest passenger fatality total ever recorded. One member of the workforce was fatally injured, compared with three in 2008.*Latest ERA report (covering 2004-07); ref ERA/REC/03-2009/SAF Recommendation on the 1st set of common safety targets. NRV1.2FWSI: fatalities & weighted serious injuries involving moving trains as defined in Article 3(d) of Commission Decision 2009/460/ECOn the 2005-2008 data (available on Eurostat) were still second to Sweden.Safety The reduction in safety risk is reduced by 3%Passengers at managed stations 20% improvementWorkforce safety 1% improvement 1 fatalityPassenger Safety Indicator (Passenger safety under control of NR; primarily NR managed stations) = 20% improvementWorkforce Safety (Fatalities and Weighted Injuries) (FWI) = 1% improvement. Although we needed to make improvement of 30%!1 workforce fatality in the last financial year (Period 1: Stewarton)We have now gone just over 1 year without a workforce fatalityThe industry is on track to deliver the 3% improvement in safety risk for CP4 (actually ahead of target).Network Rail tracks its contribution to the CP4 industry targets through the first two measures above (PSI and FWI)Key messages:Despite the 6% improvement in workforce safety in 2010/11, we still suffered one workforce fatality (Stewarton). We have also had a number of major injury accidents that illustrate the need for continued vigilance in this area.The independent review by RSSB into under-reporting of RIDDOR accidents has shown the need for a change in our safety culture. We need to build an open and honest reporting culture where people feel confident in reporting accidents, incidents and close calls.Some of the changes were looking to make:Removing targets for the Accident Frequency Rate. Because we think it may be contributing to under reporting of accidentsRemoving targets for Fatalities Weighted Injuries (middle measure on the slide) at a functional and local level but keeping a corporate target to track our progress against our CP4Importantly: We want to know about every accident so that we can learn from themWe will continue to look at other changes to how we measure and report on safety including changes to our safety leadership and culture.
