CECA NW Supply Chain Conference

CHANGE INFRASTRUCTURE: RAIL  -  This was the fourth CECA NW supply chain conference, at Emirates Old Trafford, supported by the Construction Industry Training Board.  The event took a different approach this year, and the conference focussed on rail.  It is particularly good timing, as Network Rail builds up towards Control Period 6, the conference assists contractors to prepare accordingly.

Equally, Transport for the North’s recent consultation on strategic development corridors has indicated what the north’s priorities for investment in transport will be. There is also the important regional dimension, as LEPs, local transport boards, local authorities and passenger transport authorities set about developing their plans for ensuring transport infrastructure supports both those initiatives to strengthen northern economies, and the rapid growth of new housing development.
