UK TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE SUMMIT

23RD MAY 2018

15 CANADA SQUARE
LONDON E14 5GL

OVERVIEW

The National Infrastructure Commission are in consultation mode in the first half of 2018. They want to gauge opinion on their plans to tackle congestion on our transport networks, increase capacity and reduce carbon. While energy and better broadband connections feature strongly in the NIC's recommendations it is transport which takes most of their attention.

The Summit will be held alongside the NIC and will be attended by a number of their commissioners. They will set out their thinking and seek feedback from stakeholders and attendees.

There will also be the opportunity for key delivery organisations to communicate what they see as their priorities and to enter into an open, transparent and iterative dialogue with the NIC.

Key themes will be:

-How much should we rely on more Infrastructure capacity compared with squeezing more out of existing capacity through smart pricing?
-How will the digital revolution change travel patterns and deliver more capacity?
-How can transport investment help the UK to tackle the shortage of housing?

The Summit will cover rail, road and aviation connectivity.
