Light Rail & Rapid Transit
Developing and procuring effective systems

Date Of Conference: 10/15/2004

Over the last year, serious question marks have been raised over the value of light rail schemes in Great Britain. Costs of implementation have risen significantly, and the government has hesitated over providing increased funding support, posing serious doubts over a few well advanced schemes. Yet these schemes usually underpin approved regeneration and growth strategies for major cities or sub-regions.

This conference provides a unique forum for exchanging experience and opinion on these crucial issues, which concern all those responsible for planning, procuring, funding and operating rapid transit schemes in the UK.
