This is the second session of PPP’s Future of UK rail project which brings together the private and public sector to explore a critical part of the UK’s infrastructure in the context of building back better from the pandemic.

With growing concern over cost-efficiency and decarbonisation targets, a radical technological transformation could help level up the existing rail network and provide a forward-thinking service that makes use of innovative products. Technology also has a specific role in the wider decarbonisation agenda which has become more pressing with increased climate goals and the COP26 Programme in Glasgow later this year. This session will look at how the UK can create a more environmentally friendly rail network, analysing its current impact, most significant improvement areas across the nation, as well as how the latest technology being used internationally can be similarly utilised.

Chaired by Stephen Hammond MP, Deputy Chair of PPP and Former Transport Minister, this second roundtable will be split into two parts ‘Creating a technological revolution’ and ‘how to decarbonise the railways’.
