TRANSPORT AFTER THE GENERAL ELECTION

23RD MAY 2024

KPMG
15 CANADA SQUARE
LONDON E14 5GL

OVERVIEW

How will a new UK Government de-carbonise, fund and deliver a sustainable transport system?

Net zero, transport reform, funding and delivery remain the big challenges facing the transport industry. With a General Election due this year, our event will feature expert discussion on what the response and approach of the new government might be.

During this event we will discuss:

  • The imminent pre-legislative scrutiny of the draft Rail Reform Bill – will there be cross party support and will Great British Railways and vertical integration be delivered in full? What role will the private sector play going forward?
  • Network North has replaced the northern leg of HS2 – will this continue to be the case or will High Speed 2 be resurrected? How will improved connectivity and additional capacity be realised and what role will the Rail Network Enhancement Pipeline play in the future?
  • Devolution of transport powers across rail and bus are seen as vital for creating the favourable conditions for achieving affordable, joined-up public transport networks to provide viable alternatives to private cars. How high a priority will further devolution of powers be so that City Regions can plan and deliver these crucial transport networks and services and achieve behavioural change?
  • Will the next Government be brave enough to champion and fund the green policies necessary to achieve Net Zero or will populism be a serious threat to de-carbonisation?

Our one day conference will bring together key decision-makers, practitioners and thinkers to discuss and debate what the transport industry may look like after the General Election
