2nd Annual: Transport-Led Development in the North of England 2017

Delivering transport infrastructure and securing investment to unlock economic growth and regeneration opportunities in the North

Wed 1st February 2017 DLA Piper, Manchester
  • With the Prime Minister and the Chancellor reasserting their commitment to the Northern Powerhouse during the Conservative Party Conference this is a must attend event to learn the numerous development opportunities available in the North of England created by the delivery of transport infrastructure and to identify the areas with potential for large scale development.

    This one day event will provide a vital update on the delivery of transport infrastructure in the North of England, review case studies and lessons learnt from recent developments and explore plans to improve connectivity – including HS2 and HS3. Project updates include:

    • Manchester Airport’s future plans
    • Manchester Piccadilly and Leeds stations
    • Manchester to Sheffield Trans-Pennine Road Tunnel
    • Humber Ports

    Delegates will have the opportunity to hear from Transport for the North on how they are working with the Government to create the first ever comprehensive transport strategy for the region, as well as to meet leading developers, investors, transport and planning experts.

    Make sure you attend to receive an essential insight on the latest road, rail services, airport, port and smart ticketing projects and improvements for both passenger and freight services, learn about the finance options available for transport schemes, and discuss the future of devolution deals for the region and how these impact on transport projects.
