The shortlist for the next chairman of Network Rail has been drawn up.

The board is looking for a successor to Rick Haythornthwaite, who will stand down from the Government-backed owner and operator of the UK's rail infrastructure. It is understood that the names will be discussed at a board meeting towards the end of the month. The advertisement for the role called for candidates with experience at chairman or chief executive level at "a major commercial organisation".
