Speaker: Alastair Dalton, transport correspondent of The Scotsman

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.

Construction Logistics – Myth-busting – Building and Boring (not!) (?)Book Now

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!

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.
