THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This timely conference will discuss the development of city transportation networks and the potential for improving transport links between city centres and suburban areas, local growth and innovation, and boosting job creation and productivity, in the context of the Government’s £1.7 billion Transforming Cities Fund.
It will also be an opportunity for delegates to consider key issues emerging from the National Infrastructure Assessment being developed by the National Infrastructure Commission - focusing on its vision for the UK up to 2050 and the emphasis on city transport. Delegates will also discuss key issues around attracting public and private investment, creating clean and decarbonised city environments, and integrating new technology.
Those attending will examine the development of large-scale projects in metro cities, alongside schemes such as the Northern Powerhouse and Midlands Engine - including areas such as light rail, bus rapid transit, underground rail, and walking and cycling facilities.
Further sessions will assess plans for upgrading transportation networks in smaller cities through the Fund’s bidding process, looking at some of the innovative approaches being taken to boost local connectivity and economic growth.
