Event description

Description

As towns, cities and regions search for solutions to economic competitiveness, resilience, social inclusion, housing and identity, what role should our stations be playing?

With 90% of the British population just 20 minutes away from one of the country's 2,500 railway stations, this extensive network is one of the last remaining civic building estates in the country, presenting both a great challenge and opportunity in the changing face of modern Britain.

In 2008, the then Secretary of State for Transport, Lord Adonis, commissioned the wide-ranging Better Stations report on the future of the nation’s stations. A decade on, we present an expert panel who will share their insights into today’s challenges, providing perspectives on the role of stations in city-shaping, and how the rail industry, central and local government and the private sector need to work together to unlock the potential from this unique estate.

Speakers & perspectives

  • A national perspective - The Rt Hon The Lord Adonis, formerly Secretary of State for Transport and Chair of the National Infrastructure Commission
  • A city region perspective - Eamonn Boylan, CEO of Greater Manchester Combined Authority
  • A developer’s perspective - Rob Heasman, Project Director for Euston, Lendlease as Master Development Partner working with the Department for Transport, Network Rail and HS2 Limited
