Rail - a beginners guideBook Now
Start Date:26/01/2021 17:00:00
End Date:26/01/2021 18:15:00
Event Code:WNYG0336
Description:

When:
26 January 2021, 17:00 - 18:15 

Where: Zoom Webinar
Speakers:
Julian Worth, Chair, CILT(UK) Rail Freight Forum
Martin Fleetwood, Chair, CILT(UK) Strategic Rail Policy Group

The rail industry has never been more important to the UK economy. Rail freight volumes are growing and in recent years (at least until the arrival of the Coronavirus pandemic) passenger journeys have been hitting all-time highs. Whether it is delivering food to our supermarkets during the pandemic, supporting alternative post - Brexit supply chains, improving access to education, health and work opportunities, or enabling the decarbonisation of surface transport; rail is an essential public service.

It is now 25 years since the last major industry wide restructuring, which split railway infrastructure (the “Network”) from train operations. The modern railway comprises an extensive supply chain of public and privately owned enterprises delivering over 16 billion net tonne kilometres of freight and 1.7 billion passenger journeys per year. While the pandemic has meant that the government has entered in to new arrangements with passenger operators, most of the operational structure remains unaltered.

The pace of change is accelerating with new routes proposed, such as East - West Rail; and others under construction, e.g. Crossrail and HS2, and major enhancements such as Northern Powerhouse Rail. New forms of motive power are being developed with prototype battery and hydrogen powered trains now under test.

The increasing demands being made on the network have already seen proposals for changes to the industry drawn up and the pandemic has exposed the necessity for further review and evolution.

For our “beginners guide” to the rail industry the chairs of two CILT forums:
Martin Fleetwood - Strategic Rail Policy Group
Julian Worth - Rail Freight Forum
They will outline the current industry structure, identify some of the challenges faced by rail, and describe possible future developments in both organisation and operation.

The Abbey Wood to Ebbsfleet Connectivity Study – How Should we Invest in Transport to Deliver the Government’s Vision for the Thames Estuary?Book Now

Where: Zoom Webinar
Speaker: Martin Tedder, Programme Director – Abbey Wood-Ebbsfleet Connectivity project

In 2018 the Thames Estuary Growth Commission, led by Sir John Armitt, identified that the Estuary could deliver a million new homes and 1.3 million new jobs by 2050, making this one of the largest opportunities for growth anywhere in the UK. The area between Abbey Wood, where the current Crossrail line is due to terminate, and Ebbsfleet, as an international gateway, has both the ambition and the opportunity to help deliver the Government’s vision for the Estuary. But the Growth Commission was clear that the area’s full potential would only be realised by investing in the quality of its transport networks including, potentially, an extension to Crossrail. In response, Government have funded a landmark study to identify what transport improvements are needed and how these can help deliver new homes and jobs.

Speaker: Julian Worth – Chair CILT Rail Freight Forum 


Julian Worth has spent 41 years in the railfreight industry in a wide variety of roles, including Managing Director, Transrail Freight, and Marketing Director, English Welsh & Scottish Railway. He now works with a range of clients in the private and public sectors, providing strategic advice on rail-based logistics and associated facilities. He also writes on railfreight matters and speaks at conferences in the UK and abroad. Julian also Chairs the CILT Rail Freight Forum.



Julian will outline how rail freight responded to dramatic changes in customer requirements through the Pandemic and how - in complete contrast to the passenger business - it has recovered virtually to normal, with 90+% of previous volumes now moving. He will then look ahead to the likely future size, shape and make-up of the railway across the various markets, both freight and passenger.

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.
