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.

The Transport Knowledge Hub is a fantastic resource and I’m really excited about the opportunity to explore how we can maximise its use among transport stakeholders. In the South East Midlands, investing in local transport infrastructure has unlocked significant economic growth. The Hub offers a formal framework for sharing expertise with decision makers around the UK, as well as learning from the experience of others. This will enable more investment to be directed towards  local and sustainable forms of transport.
