THE GREAT TRANSPORT DEBATE

11TH MARCH 2015

LONDON E14 5GL

OVERVIEW

With the next General Election taking place on 7th May 2015, Transport Times in association with KPMG is holding a timely political debate focusing on the key policies each party is advocating for dealing with our complex transport needs.

There will be 3 panel debates focussing on Rail, Bus and Aviation with transport experts setting out what they see as the main transport challenges the next Government must grapple with. This will be followed by a lively panel debate with politicians from the three mainstream parties.

We are delighted to announce that Secretary of State for Transport, Patrick McLoughlin MP has confirmed his participation at this event.

The event will address the key transport issues which separate the main political parties, these include:

  • Should the public sector be allowed to bid for rail franchises?
  • Should we extend the London Bus Franchising Model to other cities?
  • Will the political parties support the recommendation from the Davies Commission on a new runway? Should it be Heathrow or Gatwick?
