Securing Investment in the Rail Sector

Exploring the pipeline of opportunities and models for private investment
Wednesday 30 January 2019 Dentons, London
With an infrastructure funding gap in the UK, what role can private investment play to ensure rail projects can be successfully delivered? As Network Rail have recently published a pipeline of investment opportunities and the Department for Transport is exploring market-led proposals, this event will explore how the industry is moving forward and what the opportunities for third party investment are. This focused event will bring together the sector to explore how to make private investment in rail a reality, attend to review the opportunities for future investment and consider the models and structures that can be used.

Highlights of attending: 


  • Explore potential projects and opportunities for private investment in the UK rail sector with talks from Network Rail and the Department for Transport
  • Understand the potential models that can be used to secure private investment and how a deal can be structured
  • Contribute to the discussion on how the industry can successfully deliver public-private partnerships
  • Consider the potential barriers to investment and how these can be overcome
