Commercial Estate Sale

Network Rail has decided to sell the Commercial Estate business, because it is a non-core property asset and Network Rail ownership/management is not essential for running the railway. This will allow the company to place even more focus on its core business of running a safe, reliable and growing railway.

The business is comprised of around 5,500 properties in England and Wales, the majority of which are railway arches. The sale includes the business management platform. Assets in Scotland are not being sold.

The Commercial Estate is a profitable and successful business that operates commercially and is a viable business to sell. All the proceeds from the sale will be retained by Network Rail and will help us to fund the Railway Upgrade Plan, which is improving and enhancing the rail network for the benefit of passengers and the economy.
