THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This seminar will examine priorities for delivering new and improved transport infrastructure across the North of England.
It will be an opportunity to discuss key measures from Transport for the North’s Strategic Transport Plan - with a final strategy due to be published this year - as well as the next steps for delivering the sustainable and innovative infrastructure system needed to underpin regional development and economic growth.
Following the Government’s £300 million investment aimed at ensuring HS2 is compatible with future Northern Powerhouse Rail services, and Network Rail’s Great North Rail Project which aims to deliver a multi-billion pound package of improvements - attendees will discuss the priorities for securing future funding for northern transport.
Further sessions focus on plans for potential improvements to Trans-Pennine road routes, opportunities for improving international connections, the part Metro Mayors can play in developing trans-city links, and the challenges for expanding both freight and passenger services.
