Richard Fenton, our North West specialist Transport Engineer attended the Northern Transport Summit on 16th May at Beetham Tower in Manchester. As part of his CPD and keeping him up to date and aware of the industry Richard enjoyed a full days talks and meeting up with transportation professionals new and old.
He reported back that it had been a day of very interesting presentations on current projects and future strategies for rail, highways, public transport, walking & cycling. Speakers included Chris Grayling MP (Secretary of State for Transport), Chris Boardman (former Olympic cycling champion and now walking & cycling ambassador for Greater Manchester), Andy Burnham (Mayor of Greater Manchester), Steve Rotherham (Metro Mayor of Liverpool City Region), as well as from Highways England, Network Rail, and HS2. Waterman were also one of the sponsors of the event.
Richard recommends these events for anyone looking to keep aware of the industry, for their CPD and for anyone involved in planning these areas of work.
