NORTH OF ENGLAND TRANSPORT SUMMIT

12TH FEBRUARY 2020

OVERVIEW

How Transport is Going to Drive Economic Growth in the North

Supported by Transport for the North, the 4th Annual North of England Transport Summit will bring together the key politicians and practitioners to discuss and debate the future transport strategy for the north of England.

The new government is said to be looking at spending nearly £80bn on infrastructure projects in key northern cities within the next five years. However spending commitments beyond 2021 show how £3,636 per head is planned in London, with only £1,247 per head in the north. The North of England Transport Summit will address why the North needs to be front and centre for investment for the next decades. 

It will include the following themes:
• The long term rail strategy to connect the North cities
• Connecting the cities in the North of England to the rest of the UK via high speed rail
• The case for a long term bus strategy in Northern England
• Transforming travel and the areas we live in
