Alastair Dalton is Scotland's leading transport correspondent, writing for both The Scotsman and Scotland on Sunday, reporting news and reflecting in his regular Inside Transport column on the state of our transport networks. There he recently listed bus, air and car as his least favourite modes, with rail in the middle and his preferred modes for at least local journeys as walking and especially electric bikes.  The conflict at local level between cyclists, motorists and pedestrians over allocation of road space has attracted his attention, and he has observed the ability of especially the rail industry to shoot itself in the foot.

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.
