Trespass Improvement Programme
The Trespass Improvement Programme (TIP) was instigated in January 2018 and is a cross-industry initiative to prevent and reduce trespass across the rail network. The impact of trespass on our industry is huge. In 2018/19 as well as more than 20 fatalities the impact affects hundred of thousands of passengers with 13,500 known trespass events delaying 160,000 trains. With a total of around 800,000 delay minutes, over £60m in Schedule 8 payments reduced the money available to improve safety across the network.
