What makes this role unique?

The Transpennine Route is a major transport artery for the UK and for the communities and economies across the north of England. It runs for 76 miles between Manchester, Leeds, York, Selby and onto Humberside. It's a hugely popular route and passenger numbers have doubled over the past 25 years. Millions of people that work, study and live alongside the railway depend on it every year.
The Transpennine Route Upgrade (TRU) is a multi-billion pound investment programme that will deliver a high performing, reliable railway for passengers with more seats, more trains and faster journeys between Manchester and York via Huddersfield and Leeds. It is the biggest railway transformation the north has seen since the Victorian era.
TRU is made up of three programmes: West of Leeds, Leeds Central and East of Leeds. The West of Leeds Alliance (TRU West) is responsible for the transformation of the railway between Manchester and Leeds.

Acting as one team, the TRU West Alliance will put passengers first and deliver a positive outcome for all involved: for the team, which will gain unparalleled experience; for people that live, work and study along the railway; for Network Rail's customers and stakeholders; for the public purse and ultimately, for the North of England. In this way, the TRU West Alliance will not only deliver present benefit but also leave a lasting, sustainable legacy.
