Transport Knowledge Hub Events

On 19 November, the Transport Knowledge Hub hosted an event in Birmingham. Chaired by Gerard Whelan, Director of Corporate Finance, Government and Infrastructure at KMPG, the regional forum heard some of the early findings of new research undertaken by KPMG on the opportunities and barriers for a more integrated approach between housing and transport. Lilian Greenwood MP, the Chair of the Transport Select Committee, gave a keynote speech and praised the KPMG research as a robust contribution to the important question of how sustainable transport can unlock the benefits of new housing. Speakers included  Laura Shoaf (Transport for West Midlands), Tom Stables (National Express), Simon Statham (Midlands Connect) and Jack Kelly (Midlands Heart).

The Transport Knowledge Hub comes at a vital time for our transport networks. As our population continues to grow and our roads become more congested, public transport has an increasingly important role to play in keeping our country moving. Investment in local transport infrastructure, such as rail networks and bus services, can have a huge impact on development and economic growth in local areas, so I’m delighted that the Hub will provide the guidance and expertise local decision makers need to make effective investments.

Sir Peter Hendy, Chairman of Network Rail
