Collectively, we want to make sure we deliver on the foundations laid in previous years, so that we can truly realise the economic potential of our region – Transport for the North Chair
Transport for the North (TfN) has announced tickets for its fourth Annual Conference have sold out. Over 300 delegates are now registered with enquiries continuing to be received.
The conference takes place on Monday 6th March in Newcastle, where Northern leaders will gather under a theme of how we can best ‘Transform the North’ to deliver transformational change in the public transport system.
Leaders representing the North’s towns and cities will take to the stage for speeches and a variety of panel discussions on major issues impacting the North. They’ll be discussing the initial findings of the Northern Powerhouse Independent Economic Review (NPIER) and our refreshed Strategic Transport Plan (STP). The conference will also see discussions on Transport for the North’s work in EV charging, Freight and Logistics, Active Travel and Rural Mobility.
Lord Patrick McLoughlin, Chair of Transport for the North said:
“We are very pleased with the level of interest our annual conference has received. Having a forum that allows us to speak with one voice on key transport investment decisions made across the region, will enable us to better understand the challenges and opportunities ahead, improve decision making resilience, and better inform the case for investment.
“We’re also thrilled to welcome such a strong and experienced speaker line-up. The panel sessions will showcase the need for change and demonstrate the practical, innovative plans and projects we have set out, which underpin our strategic goals that ensure investment reflects the North’s agreed priorities.
“Collectively, we want to make sure we deliver on the foundations laid in previous years so that we can truly realise the economic potential of our region. To do that, we know it takes a collaborative approach – one that will benefit of our existing communities and the generations to come.”
