Network Rail Limited Key Developments

Network Rail Seeking To Sell Commercial Property Portfolio

Network Rail Limited is looking to sell its commercial property portfolio worth over £1 billion. Network Rail has hired bankers at N M Rothschild & Sons Limited to assist in the sale. The railway land and properties no longer required for operational use might also be included in the potential sale. However, the portfolio does not include the stations, which the Government is also considering selling or outsourcing. A source close to Network Rail said Network Rail has “a pretty good understanding of what they are worth” and hoped that Rothschild would verify these assumptions.
