Young Rail Professional’s North East invites you to join the “Levelling up The North with Rail Programmes” event on Tuesday the 5th of May, starting at 6pm.

As regional inequalities across the UK have become more apparent, such disparity has risen to the forefront among policy makers. Railway infrastructure is seen as a crucial component in producing many societal and economic benefits, in order for the government to begin “levelling up”. Subsequently, we are now witnessing a growing momentum build, creating the onset of progressive programmes within the North of England. We are grateful to be joined by distinguished guest speakers with a diverse experience in leading major projects and programmes, who will discuss and consider questions such as:

  • Why are these investments necessary?

  • How will the benefits build incrementally?

  • What challenges may be faced in these multi-billion-pound programmes of work?

Oliver Craig, Young Rail Professional’s North East Chair will act as compere for the evening.

On the panel are:
John Reed – Industry Programme Director, Transpennine Route Upgrade, Network Rail
Tim Wood – Northern Powerhouse Rail Director, Transport for the North

We look forward to you joining us!
