Regional and Urban Rail
Our urban and regional rail networks are key to sustaining city centre economies, whilst rail also provides the wider connectivity that city regions need.
Reform of the railways must build on the success of the devolution of rail powers which has already taken place, with city regions fully involved in how rail reform plans unfold.
Rail Cities UK
Rail has been critical in the development of our cities. If cities are to achieve their potential – and do so in an inclusive and sustainable way – then we need a vision for urban rail which will support that.
How we work on rail
Tobyn Hughes, Managing Director at Transport North East, is our lead Board member on rail, working with Urban Transport Group's Tom Ellerton, who is the lead staff member on rail.
Our Rail Strategy group within our Professional Network focuses on regional and urban rail issues.
