SW England regional seminar

20 February, 2019

Our 2018 report Beyond HS2 set out a long-term plan for Britain’s railways. It provided a strategic blueprint to connect the South West better with the rest of Britain.  It took as its central theme the role that the rail network could take in achieving national economic objectives (in particular, improving productivity) and looked at places ‘left behind’ as well as the main drivers of rail demand, the large cities.

But rail isn’t always the answer and in 2019 we are focusing on the challenge of creating an easy-to-use joined-up national transport network that doesn’t rely on private car use. Our series of regional seminars bring together key stakeholders to consider how to create such a network; Creating a joined up public transport network in the SW  supports the session in Plymouth.
