Railway track authority Railtrack is to review its use of agencies for

public affairs and internal communications as the company settles down

to life in the private sector.



The company - which was privatised last month - is to outsource

production of its bi-monthly in-house magazine Connections and will

shortly be issuing a call for tenders.



It was, said Railtrack’s director of corporate affairs, Philip Dewhurst,

part of an ambitious cultural change programme designed to make the

company more customer focused.



At the same time the company is to review its use of public affairs

consultancies - it currently uses GJW on a project basis but ended its

contract with Matrix when it floated.



Public affairs manager Simon Miller, is expected to use the summer

Parliamentary recess to conduct a full review of consultancy support.



The news emerged as the company confirmed the appointment of its

financial PR adviser Financial Dynamics on a retained basis, along with

the appointment of Peter Durman from Railtrack’s privatisation unit, as

its new investor relations manager.
