transcityrail midlands 2024

  • 29 February 2024
  • Birmingham

This year, the plans for 2024 on the Midland Main Line Electrification, HS2, East West Rail, Midlands Connect, Birmingham Curzon Street Station, station upgrades, freight rail improvement and much more will be discussed.

Our Market Director, Andrew Dugdale, will be speaking at the event on ‘where better journeys begin – making the case for 21st century connectivity’. It is commonly accepted that communities with better access to transport links perform better across almost every metric, including education, employment and Gross Value Added (GVA). The case for new transport links to act as the catalyst for generation doesn’t need to be built on the back of existing success areas. So, how can the Midlands Engine make the case for better transport links? And more importantly, how we can we, in the supply chain, learn global lessons to change how we deliver and make projects (such as Midlands Rail Hub, the Midlands metro expansion and TriLink) affordable in times of global fiscal pressure?

The european light rail congress 2024

  • 14 March 2024
  • Seville, Spain

SYSTRA will be attending The European Light Rail Conference which brings together key decision makers and leading professionals across Europe for two days of debate covering the role of technology in the development of sustainable urban travel. Operators, local authorities and light rail experts will discuss building sustainable, efficient and well-integrated transport systems, as well as the latest innovative solutions, to improve passenger experience at every step of their journey.

Attending from SYSTRA will be our Associate Director in Transport Planning, Ian Bruce, who will be sharing his expertise and insight during his presentation on ‘Delivering social, economic and environmental value through station placemaking’, with a particular focus on the built environment in and around stations, but also station features and facilities. Improvements to placemaking can make stations more accessible and safer, turning stations into destinations in their own right. This benefits not only passengers, but also the local community (including residents and businesses) and the environment. This concept will be illustrated using SYSTRA project case studies including an assessment of the social value of Tyne & Wear Metro stations, monitoring and evaluation of the Nottingham tram and the development of the new tram network in Bologna.
