A blueprint for an integrated transport system in the north?

PSE is heading to the launch of IPPR North’s flagship ‘Transport for the North’ report today, which we’ve been told provides a blueprint for how the north can move towards an integrated transport system. 

We’ve been told this would cover three northern regions, which would ultimately be responsible for franchising, infrastructure investment, smart ticketing and more. 

The event will explore what the benefits of Transport for the North will be and what additional responsibilities such a body could take on in future. 

Speakers at today’s event, held at PwC in Manchester, include HS2 chief executive Simon Kirby; Jon Lamonte, CEO of Transport for Greater Manchester; Ed Cox, director at IPPR North; and Vernon Everitt, TfL’s managing director of Customer Experience, Marketing and Communications. 

Momentum is building behind the Northern Powerhouse agenda and a united desire for the north to transform its transport links and economic prospects; it will be interesting to see what this new report brings to the debate.

25/10/2017Take a moment to celebrate

Devolution, restructuring and widespread service reform: from a journalist’s perspective, it’s never been a more exciting time to report on the public sector. That’s why I could not be more thrilled to be taking over the reins at PSE at this key juncture. There could not be a feature that more perfectly encapsulates this feeling of imminent change than the article James Palmer, mayor of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, has penned for us on p28.
