The GB Railfreight industry is changing rapidly – evolving from a dependence on the heavy industries of power generation and steel production to a more customer-focussed role supporting diverse supply chains across the construction, supermarket and fast-moving consumer goods sectors.  Businesses in many sectors now see Railfreight as a key component of their logistics strategies and they value its ability to address some of the pressing challenges facing the nation, including:-

Trunk road congestion
Delivery reliability
City centre deliveries
Decarbonisation and 
Emissions

The presentation by members of the CILT Railfreight Forum will describe the current and developing roles across the industry.

When:
Thursday 13th February 2020, 17:45 for 18:30 - 20:00
Where: London Metropolitan University, Holloway Road, London
Meeting Point: Security

Speaker: John Nelson

The history of the “privatised” railway is full of cautionary tales. Our speaker, John Nelson, will share some of these and discuss the way ahead for railways in the UK. John Nelson was the last Director of Network South East for British Rail and oversaw turning the railway’s largest organisation into the multi-company matrix that represented the privatised passenger railway in 1997. Since then he has been centrally involved in advising both public and private sector bodies on many aspects of railway organisation and structure both through his consultancy company and non-executive director roles. John was a Board member for the McNulty Value for Money Study of the railways published in 2011 and played a major part in developing Open Access services. He remains involved in various advisory roles and his recently published book can be seen as a contribution to the Williams review of railway structure.

Speaker: Nick Richardson FCILT, Technical Principal, Integrated Transport Division, Mott Macdonald

Nick Richardson, a Director and Trustee of the Chartered Institute, makes a welcome return to present members with his well-informed views on the future of transport. That future, which inevitably will see an expansion of demand, is now an important element in a growing awareness of the fragility of the planet. The supply of transport will have to be a sustainable one. There are already many possibilities for such a format but the problem is : what is likely to work and should be developed and what is unlikely to work and needs to be rapidly discontinued ? An essential look into a crystal ball for all transport practitioners !

Construction Logistics – Myth-busting – Building and Boring (not!) (?)Book Now
Start Date:09/03/2020 18:30:00
End Date:09/03/2020 20:00:00
Event Code:TVG0384
Description:


When: 09 March 18:00 for (18:30) - 20:00
Where: Reading Town Hall, Blagrave St, Reading, West Berkshire RG1 1QH
Meeting Point: Soane Space

Speaker: Colin Duff FICE,FCIHT, Director, Costain

Compared with the stately dance of retail logistics, construction logistics is a whirlwind of moving parts, environmental factors, rapidly changing timescales, short shelf-life (hours for ready mix concrete compared to days for dairy products) and one of the most regulated sectors in the economy. With the sheer scale, size and impact that accompanies major construction projects, keeping all of the logistic challenges under control can make for exciting times. 



EG; - 35% of daytime HGV traffic in London is generated by the construction industry, which equates to 520,000 miles per day. The annual value of construction in London is £31bn and the volume of construction freight is only set to grow further. This work generates a significant amount of road freight movement, which in turn increases congestion, emissions and road risk. The cost of construction road freight for the whole of London is £779,908,000.

Colin Duff, Director at Costain will give us an overview of how these challenges are met in the sector and how the risk-benefits of construction logistics are somewhat different to other sectors.  If you thought same-day multi-drop delivery logistics was difficult, come and listen to this! 



For Reading members familiar with the Cow Lane development, look at this underpass being installed in one weekend in Holland: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=btOE0rcKDC0 (3mins 18 sec)

As usual, discussion will continue after the formal presentation in the adjacent pub at 2000.  All are welcome to join us.

Midlands Connect – An Update on the Business Cases for the Midlands Rail Hub and the Thames Valley – Airport – Midlands (TVAM) CorridorBook Now

Event Code:BCG0381
Description:


When: 23 April 17:15 for (17:30) - 18:45
Where: Centro House, 16 Summer Lane, Birmingham, B19 3SD
Meeting Point: Main Reception

Speaker: Andy Clark and Richard Mann, Senior Rail Programme Managers, Midlands Connect

In their role as Senior Rail Programme Managers, Andy Clark and Richard Mann will provide an update on the development work for two strategic rail projects in the Midlands:

Midlands Rail Hub: A Strategic Outline Business Case was submitted to the Department for Transport in June 2019, outlining a range of options to provide enhanced connectivity across a range of corridors in the Midlands. This could comprise up to 10 further trains per hour (TPH) through the Birmingham area, facilitated by means of two new chords close to Birmingham Moor Street, allowing a fundamental shift in the way that rail capacity in the Birmingham area is used. The Strategic Outline Business Case included a funding ask for the next stage of work – the Outline Business Case, which is expected to start in early 2020.

Thames Valley / Airport / Midlands (TVAM): An Outline Business Case is currently being developed by Midlands Connect and Network Rail to improve connectivity between the Thames Valley and West Midlands, including Coventry and Birmingham Airport. The draft document confirms there is a very strong case for additional services to operate via Coventry and Birmingham International, which would require some further double tracking between Leamington Spa and Coventry. Midlands Connect hopes that there will be funding available for the Full Business Case (FBC) to be developed from 2020 onwards.

Refreshments and a light buffet will be provided.
