Office of Rail and Road (ORR)

Category: Non-ministerial department

The Office of Rail and Road is the independent safety and economic regulator for Britain's railways and monitor of Highways England.

We are here to ensure the network operates safely, reliably and provides value for taxpayers and customers. We safeguard the public and the workforce by regulating the rail industry's health and safety performance. We hold Network Rail to account – and we require it to provide passengers with a punctual, reliable service. We make sure that train and freight operating companies have fair access to the rail network, and that the market is competitive and fair.

As Highways Monitor we are responsible for monitoring Highways England's management of the strategic road network – the motorways and main 'A' roads in England.
