NIC workshop - inter urban & international transport

14 March 2017

The National Infrastructure Commission has been tasked by Government to put together the first ever National Infrastructure Assessment (NIA). This is an in-depth look at the UK’s major infrastructure needs over the coming 30 years, covering Energy, Transport, Water, Waste, Telecoms and Flood Risk Management.

To help us undertake this significant task, we are holding a series of highly interactive workshops. This is not a seminar where you’ll be talked at, but a time and place to have your views recorded, shared and challenged. The future of infrastructure is a complex issue and there is no simple right answer, but we hope to develop better thinking with your help. We want to capture different perspectives as we develop a rich and robust evidence base to inform the NIA.

Following on from the workshop on Urban Transport held on the 31st January, the next workshop in our series will explore Inter-urban and International Transport, and we are inviting a wide range of informed stakeholders to come and share their knowledge with us, and help consider challenges, responses, trade-offs and priorities.

Where? Central Birmingham (venue to be confirmed)

When? 10am – 4pm, 14th March 2017 (precise timings subject to final confirmation)
