New decade, new Government – what needs to be done to build world-class rail in the 2020s

New decade, new Government – what needs to be done to build world-class rail in the 2020s
 
  6:15 pm - 7:30 pm

The George Ramshaw Curry Memorial Lecture is back in 2020 and will be given by Darren Caplan, Chief Executive of the Railway Industry Association (RIA), on the 145th Anniversary of the national trade body’s establishment.

Darren Caplan will speak on the topic of 'New decade, new Government – what needs to be done to build world-class rail in the 2020s', with the lecture exploring what – in light of the 2019 General Election – both the new Government and the railway industry needs to do on the challenges facing UK rail. The lecture will cover ‘boom and bust’ in rail funding, the need for more robust support for major rail infrastructure projects and enhancement schemes, and the need to decarbonise and digitalise rail within a couple of decades. Caplan will also speak about the solutions proposed by RIA in its ‘RAIL 2050 Manifesto’, and the need for longer-term thinking by those who build, maintain and are responsible for the UK’s railways.

Cost: Free of Charge
