What and how we regulate
We are the independent regulator for Britain's rail industry and monitor of Highways England.
We are the economic regulator for railway infrastructure (Network Rail and HS1); the health and safety regulator for the rail industry as a whole – including mainline, metro, tramways and heritage railways across Britain; and the industry's consumer and competition authority. We also monitor Highways England's management of the strategic road network – the motorways and main A roads in England.
