A post-pandemic transport transformation?

10 March 2021 - Late morning - Login for venue

Jim McMahon MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Transport

The pandemic has damaged parts of the transport sector such as aviation. It has also radically changed how many businesses operate and this has affected the demand for and use of public transport. Together with the urgent need to adopt renewable energy, it is therefore likely that future requirements for transport have been transformed, and how these are met should also be transformed. Much is already happening with the surge in production of energy from wind and solar power. A range of new technologies including the use of batteries and hydrogen are already being deployed for terrestrial, aerial and seaborne transport. Jim McMahon MP, Shadow Minister for Transport will lead an expert panel discussing changed transport requirements and the wide range of policy responses that may be needed.

Speakers:

Jim McMahon MP, Shadow Minister for Transport

Andy Bagnall, Director General, Rail Delivery Group

Katy Taylor, Chief Strategy and Customer Officer, Go-Ahead Group

Nigel Milton, Director of Communications, Heathrow

Konstanze Scharring, Director of Policy and Government Affairs, Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT)
