Hamilton directs North & East Route

New director: Jason Hamilton

Jason Hamilton has been appointed as the new Route Director on Network Rail’s North & East Route.

Mr Hamilton will take over from Matt Rice, who is moving to Northern after more than four years in the role. He has been with NR for 16 years and has most recently been part of the East Coast route’s executive team as Route Programme Director (Works Delivery) leading a multi-disciplinary maintenance, renewals and response principal contractor organisation.

He previously worked on the Great Western and South East routes as part of the Crossrail programme.
In his new role, Mr Hamilton will be responsible for day-to-day running of the network throughout Yorkshire and the North East including Sheffield, Leeds, Hull and Middlesbrough. 

He will also oversee projects such as the Northumberland Line, which is due to reopen to passengers this year, in addition to access for all projects.
