RSS Feeds

The Office of Rail and Road website uses a free news feed so you can stay up to date with our latest Publications, Press Notices and Consultations.

What is RSS?

RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is a format for distributing news content and is a simple way to keep up to date with the latest news on a website without having to visit the site.

Websites publish via RSS and then individuals or other websites automatically get the updated content via a 'news aggregator' or 'news reader'. Typically, an item in an RSS feed will only contain a title, excerpt or description, and link back to the original, more detailed content.

News readers

If you want to receive RSS you will need a news reader. Some you can access using a browser, and some are applications that need to be downloaded onto your computer or smartphone. There is a range of different news readers available and new versions are appearing all the time.

Some browsers have functionality built into the browser which automatically picks up RSS feeds for you without needing a separate news reader. For more details on these or RSS in general, please check their websites.

Subscribing to our feed

To subscribe to the feeds, select one of the items from the list then choose an aggregator from the drop-down option. Once you have chosen your news reader, press 'Subscribe now'.
