Rethinking Rail Delivery: Coordination, Strategic Direction and Capacity Growth
Transport Times is collaborating with FirstGroup and Siemens to produce fringe events at the Labour and Conservative party conferences which will focus on rail. The events are free to attend but are strictly by invite only; please contact Kirsty Walton (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in attending.
The events are located outside the secure zone. Refreshments will be provided at each.
The UK has the fastest growing railway in Europe with one of the best safety records. It is a UK success story but recent challenges in catering for continual growth has resulted in criticism from passengers and politicians, with calls for renationalisation. The organisational structure of the UK's railways is no longer working. Rail needs a new guiding mind. A "root and branch" review has been ordered and which is being led by Keith Williams and will be published later this year.
The private roundtable event will cover the following themes among others: The Williams Rail Review, capacity growth, strategic direction for rail, rolling stock, rail signalling and electrification.
