How to Get Rail Back on Track: Dealing with Covid-19 & Implementing the Williams Rail Review Recommendations
At the start of this year the UK rail industry faced a key challenge – improving performance. After over two decades of growth passengers and political leaders across the country are frustrated about performance. The industry has been accused of "over-promising and under-delivering".
The unprecedented covid-19 pandemic has brought an onslaught of further challenges for the industry. Challenges that need to be faced head-on.
This one-day online conference will look how we get rail back on track.
The Williams Rail Review has been looking at reforms and would provide a chance to change the fares system as well as introducing a new national rail body and 15 to 20 year passenger transport operator contracts.
Meanwhile, record investment continues to go into the industry. New capacity and digital signalling are in prospect. Flagship projects such as HS2, Crossrail and Northern Powerhouse Rail will deliver the capacity requirements the network desperately requires.
The 2020 summit will tackle themes challenging the industry including:
- Moving rail forward in a Covid-19 Britain
- Getting passengers back on trains
- Implementing the Williams Rail Review Recommendations
- Speeding up planning and delivery
- Priorities for rail across the UK
- Delivering HS2
