Black tie dinner

Following on from the release of the Integrated Rail Plan which highlighted £96bn worth of infrastructure investment, Rail North will bring together the leaders and key decision makers to discuss the plans, priorities and wider strategies in place to deliver a world class transport network.

Rail North will focus on the delivery of the major projects within the region, which include:

  • £3bn TransPennine Upgrade
  • West Yorkshire Rail Strategy
  • £100m Darlington Station Expansion
  • £84 million package to increase reliability of trains in Greater Manchester and the North
  • Trackside upgrades, platform extensions for longer trains and bigger depots across the region
  • £200m investment into the mass-transit scheme in West Yorkshire


With keynote presentations and a panel discussion, the event will provide first hand information and assist you with the information to position your company to take advantage of the many opportunities the project will bring
