Speeding Ahead: how can transport support economic growth across the country?

Roundtable with Transport for London at Conservative Party Conference.

Event starts at 12:30 on 5 October 2015 at Manchester

As the Government continues to champion its Northern Powerhouse agenda, with major transport infrastructure projects at the heart, this roundtable seeks to explore and debate how cities across the North can make the most of these investments and seeks to understand how other cities can use the wider devolution agenda to make the most out of their inter and intra city transport links to benefit wider growth.
