UK RAIL SUMMIT

13TH SEPTEMBER 2017

15 CANADA SQUARE
LONDON E14 5GL

OVERVIEW

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.

This conference will focus on:

  • Structural change to the industry, is it needed?
  • Will Network Rail achieve the targets set by the regulator on efficiency and where are we with the recommendations from the Shaw Report?
  • Is the franchising system working as well as it should?
  • What should the priorities be for rail in the North of England?
  • Should there be more rail devolution for TfL?
  • Scotland has a proud record on rail delivery: how serious a threat is the recent poor performance?
