"London Underground Ltd has a legal duty to have in place and to follow a Railway Safety Case. London Underground Ltd's Railway Safety Case had to be accepted by the Health & Safety Executive before it could act as a railway operator.
London Underground Ltd has undergone a series of major management reorganisations as a consequence of the Government's intention to develop London Underground as a public - private partnership. Each stage of the reorganisation has required a material revision to the London Underground Ltd Railway Safety Case and needed acceptance from the Health & Safety Executive before its implementation. There has also been a revision to take into account recent amendments to safety case legislation.
The final phase of the public - private partnership preparations is a proposal to transfer the London Underground infrastructure maintenance companies to the private sector. This will require another revision to London Underground Ltd's Railway Safety Case and a corresponding submission to the Health & Safety Executive.
This paper outlines the work which the Health & Safety Executive has, and will be, undertaking to determine whether London Underground Ltd's preparations for the final phase of the public - private partnership is acceptable on health and safety grounds, including the assessment of the new material revision to the London Underground Ltd Railway Safety Case. It revises and updates the original version dated 5 December 2000."
