Change of track as Montgomery leaves ScotRail
SCOTRAIL managing director Steve Montgomery is to leave the business after all, despite new Dutch operator Abellio saying only last week that he would continue in his role. He will step down in May. The reason for the change of circumstances was not explained.
Senior Network Rail executive Phil Verster will lead the new ScotRail-Network Rail working “alliance” that was part of the company’s submission for the franchise.
Mr Verster is currently route managing director of the Network Rail’s London and North East region, which includes the east coast main line.
