A Freight & Logistics Decarbonisation Strategy for the South WestBook Now
Start Date:21/04/2021 18:00:00

Description:




Formally: Railfreight: The Key to Decarbonising Trunk Haul Logistics

When:
21 April 2021, 18:00 - 19:00
Where: Zoom Webinar
Speaker: Julian Worth, Chair of CILT Rail Freight Forum and former Managing Director of Transrail Freight

This lecture is part of a series run by CILT in conjunction with Plymouth University Business School.

Julian Worth will suggest that the South West is ideally placed to take advantage of a new model of logistics and propose a Freight Decarbonisation Strategy for the region. As the only mode with a proven ability to move freight over long distances in a zero-carbon manner, using renewable or nuclear energy supplied through overhead wires, rail can assume a much larger share of trunking. Allied to the use of short and medium range battery trucks for local and regional distribution, this offers the prospect of a fully decarbonised supply chain. In advance of rail electrification, modal switch to diesel-hauled rail reduces carbon emissions by around two thirds and slows the rate at which the carbon 'budget' is consumed.

Open Debate: The National Bus StrategyBook Now
Start Date:22/04/2021 18:00:00
End Date:22/04/2021 19:00:00
Event Code:LR0403
Description:


When: 22 April 2021, 18:00 - 19:15
Where: Zoom Webinar
Speaker: Hosted by Austin Birks, Chair of Busmark and of the Bus & Coach Forum with 6 5 minute presentations from different stakeholder groups

CILT welcome the Government’s initiative in publishing Buses Back Better, the first comprehensive statement of bus strategy for decades. Possibly the last was “Workhorse to Thoroughbred” in 1999. Its emphasis on partnership is pleasing. A hidden benefit of Covid may have been establishing or reinforcing close authority and operator working relationships throughout England. A Local Authority Centre of Excellence for disseminating the skills required to provide the infrastructure and administration for inclusive mobility networks is a superb proposal.
Recognition of the importance of faster bus journeys through bus priority is long overdue and the use of bus design, information and payment technologies facilitated by Bus Open Data is timely. This will bring all passengers faster, more comfortable journeys with flexible fares and the information to plan them and monitor progress.
But, although the strategy is strong on principles, it has weaknesses in a number of delivery areas, for example:

  • Levelling up accessibility for all;
  • Changing the car-oriented mindset;
  • Consequences of Austerity: loss of services and local authority skills and capacity;
  • The Local Authority Centre of Excellence;
  • Timescales, Guidance and Legislative Capacity;
  • Resourcing the Strategy;
  • The longer term.

Panellists will drill down into Buses Back Better and give their perspectives on key issues before the virtual floor is opened to members of the audience.

Designing for Buses in the Urban Environment, onlineBook Now
Start Date:18/05/2021 09:00:00
End Date:18/05/2021 17:00:00
Event Code:PTRC0713
Description:


This one-day course will highlight common mistakes that can occur during the planning and design of bus interchanges and infrastructure. Exploring issues that may at first appear minor, but if not identified and addressed early can result in challenging and costly remedial work during the construction and post opening phases of the project. Many of these design issues occur because the designers or those approving the design may lack the specialist knowledge of bus interchange requirements, vehicle manoeuvrability and transport operations.

Taught through practical examples and case studies, the course will provide an introduction to the topic, allowing potential issues to be recognised and removed at the design stage enabling costly and time consuming issues to be avoided.

Where: Zoom Webinar
Speakers:

  • Hannah Ross is Edinburgh City Council’s Senior Responsible Officer
  • Rob Leech is the Project Director

Edinburgh Trams remains Britain's youngest light-rail system, having opened an 8-mile line from the city's Airport to York Place in 2014, and a 3-mile extension is now under construction taking it to the high-density housing and development areas of Leith and Newhaven.  Lessons have been learned from the problematical first phase, and the contractor now adopts a block-by-block approach, from excavation and utility clearance through installation of  slab track to surfacing and public realm improvements. Completion is due in 2023, and in its recent Strategic Transport Projects Review the Scottish Government takes up the recommendation from Edinburgh's City Mobility Plan for further routes to Granton and the south-east towards the Royal Infirmary and Midlothian.
