Buy your tickets here for our Light Rail Summit
A vision for the future of light rail in the UK is to be put under the spotlight in September as part of a high-profile Light Rail Summit in Edinburgh.
Organised jointly by the sector’s representative body, UKTram, and the Light Rail Safety and Standards Board, the event will feature a day of top-level debate and presentations from leading sector figures on 23rd September, followed by an evening networking event.
The following day, delegates have the option of a tour of Edinburgh’s current Trams to Newhaven extension works.
Throughout the summit, professionals from across the sector will lead discussions on the challenges and opportunities faced by tramways and other metro systems as the country emerges from the coronavirus pandemic.
It promises to be a landmark event and includes updates from across the sector, a roundup of the work of UKTram and the LRSSB and, most importantly, details of a vision for the future of light rail.
