Light Rail & Rapid Transit
Finding the keys to unlock the best options for urban travel

Date Of Conference: 10/13/2005

2005 has seen further question marks posed over light rail’s role in British urban transport. While Government funds are still in principle on the table for the main approved systems – Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, South Hampshire - the likelihood of their construction is uncertain. Even more doubts hang over any further development of light rail lines. Yet the schemes in question have been developed over many years, and they are closely linked with development and regeneration strategies for the areas served.

It remains uncertain how far Government will to agree to and implement significant changes. Simpler approaches to procurement and funding and the integration of local transport are both seen as essential for development of light rail and indeed for improvement of all urban public transport. This conference, now in its sixth year, provides a unique forum for exchanging experience and opinion on these crucial issues, which concern all those interested in the future for light rail systems in Great Britain.
