Metroisation of the Railways: ConnectedCities, 16 June | Event in London | AllEvents.in Metroisation of the Railways: ConnectedCities
Post Covid there is the opportunity for Pullman Public Transport, with demand spread over the whole day in more comfortable services

About this Event

Hybrid Live/Online Conference - 5th October 2020

Sir Peter Hendy, Chairman of Network Rail, will be the keynote speaker.

Sir Peter has stated that a cultural change is required so that the railway becomes accustomed to operating the kind of service frequencies more commonly associated with a metro system.

The event builds on a seies of online Metroisation Case Study seminars:

  • Devon Metro
  • Northumberland Line
  • Rochdale Rail Corridor
  • MetroWest Bristol
  • Oxford Metro

The conference will highlight recent successful implementation of the latest technology to achieve the necessary upgrading, and also new sources of income that can be tapped by sharing in the uplift of land and house prices which arise from improved rail services.

Post Covid Public Transport - The opportunity exists to make a step change in improving public transport, spreading the former peak-hour load across the whole day, by providing 'Pullman Standard' seating and booking, so more passengers are carried in greater comfort and enjoy and make productive use of their travelling time. Services offering realtime booking and reservations, operating from user friendly stations which are community hubs, will provide a much more attractive experience than the private car while also decarbonising travel.

By working with local authorities, housebuilders and developers the rail industry can be seen as the national hero solving the triple crises of climate, NHS and housing. All three can be assisted by improved rail services at the heart of new development with integrated and active transport. Rail will be the spines linking new and existing communities and providing the back bone of the nation's public transport.

Come and learn how these exciting new opportunities and funding sources will be tapped. We stand at the threshold of a new era for rail at the heart of the nation. www.ConnectedCities.co.uk
