Railway Study Forum Presidential addressBook Now

Description:

When: 01 October 2020, 18:00 - 19:00

Where: Zoom Webinar
Speaker: Jacqueline Starr, President, Railway Study Forum

This years presidential address will take place virtually on October 1st where Jacqueline will talk about Reform and how the railways will bounce back. 


"Those who witnessed my presidential speech almost a year ago will remember I talked about the romanticism, excitement and opportunity that lies ahead. I set out the rich history of the railway from the mid-Victorian era when industrial cities and seaside towns were created, to Dubai’s futuristic pod Hyperloop.  None of this would be possible without our people: from those who risked their lives to build the tunnels and track of our railway to those whose hard efforts have helped us to double the number of passengers in the last 20 years. I challenged all of us all to ‘get on board’ and take this unique Industry into the future.
 
As we joined together in that auditorium, little did we know that within months we would see our customer numbers  nosedive and the whole industry facing unexpected competition from a number of different quarters.  The first is an old adversary: the car.  With concerns about social distancing, one newspaper described gas-guzzlers as the ‘ultimate PPE in the Covid era’. 
 
However, it’s not just a resurgent transport mode, but also the new lifestyle many of us have been forced to trial – and a lot of us seem to like. Many commuters say they don’t wish to leave their homes now that the technology has been proven to work, introducing a flexibility we never thought possible. For thousands, that could spell the end of the 9-to-5 drudge. 
 
If that wasn’t a big enough threat to the railways, the government’s borrowing has grown exponentially and it’s likely other public services may be a priority for investment. The Williams Review, which should have published its recommendations into railway reform, has been plagued by the virus and is now delayed.
 
In spite of all this, the Industry is full of people with engrained passion and determination.  I call on all of you to harness that and get this railway back on track.
 
I’m delighted to announce that I have agreed, following a request from  the RSF committee, to remain as president for another year. "
