Next steps for the UK’s railway infrastructure

Central London

THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED



This seminar will assess the next steps for the UK’s rail infrastructure.


In the context of ongoing work to deliver HS2 including proposals for Phase 2 of the project, the expected completion of Crossrail in 2019 and work beginning for the spending and delivery obligations in Control Period 6, delegates will discuss the opportunities and challenges for further development and management of the UK’s railway infrastructure.


Planned areas of discussion include priorities for the domestic supply chain and the skills base to deliver projects on time and on budget, as well as ensuring value for money in the investment process. Attendees will also have the opportunity to evaluate prospects for managing competing priorities between passenger and freight use of the railways, as well as the integration of smarter technologies and controls to improve the efficiency of train movements.
