THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
The conference is timed to assess the next steps for UK rail infrastructure management and development, providing delegates with an opportunity to consider the policy and regulatory environment for future expansion and modernisation of the network.
With proposals put forward for Phase 2 of HS2, the recent endorsement of Crossrail 2 by Government and ongoing development of spending and delivery obligations in Control Period 6, discussion is expected to cover the outlook for major project delivery and the pipeline for new schemes to upgrade and build upon the existing network.
Additional discussion is expected to assess the reforms announced by Network Rail that will open up involvement for more companies in infrastructure investment and delivery with sessions looking into the opportunities for the domestic supply chain and the skills base to work on future projects.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to evaluate prospects for managing the priorities of all rail users and stakeholders affected by further development of the network, including ensuring infrastructure investments help facilitate intermodal freight and passenger development, whilst promoting economic growth and addressing potential environmental impacts.
