Welcome to the June edition of Rail Connect, a quarterly publication available both online and in print format.
After years of neglect, the railways in the North are suddenly attracting the interest of ministers eager to show that they want to create a ‘Northern Powerhouse’. Christian Wolmar looks at the potential financial risks of transforming the North. Continuing, Kevin Bell, Partner of Bond Dickinson considers the plans that may bring us one step closer to the creation of a ‘Northern Powerhouse’ or whether the North still remains a long way from real rail devolution.
Christian reviews the electrification of the Great Western line and assesses why progress has been delayed and costs have soared. We also hear from Andy Warhurst, Plant Operations Manager at Keltbray Rail about his experiences from working within the rail industry and we get a behind the scenes look at his everyday role at Keltbray Rail.
Philip Hoare, Group Managing Director, Transportation Division at Atkins features in this editions Q&A. Furthermore, Suzanne O’Keane, Community Manager for Rail and Transport at Achilles discusses what steps rail firms need to take to mitigate risk in the supply chain.
In addition, Julian Worth, Chair of the CILT Rail Freight Forum highlights how traditional markets for rail freight are shadows of their former selves and to survive and prosper, rail freight is changing. Following research by Campaign for Better Transport to better understand the costs of HGVs, Philippa Edmunds, Freight on Rail Manager looks at the wider economic and social costs of HGV transportation on rail.
We also have further features along with latest industry news and a selection of key dates for your diary within our diary of events.
