    • Reflects the wide range of performance and engineering issues surrounding the PTI.
    • Accounts for both the short term and long term needs of the industry.
    • Defines the research, where appropriate, needed to develop and deliver the strategy.

    Message from the chair

    There are over 1.71 billion passenger journeys on our railway each year, each of which requires the passenger to cross the PTI at least twice.  Between 2018 and 2019, the PTI accident risk profile increased by 7%.  The PTI WG is establishing a better understanding of this risk, bringing together good practice, commissioning research, and working with other groups to manage this area of risk.
