As transport bosses grapple with reduced capacity and navigate the safe reopening of towns and cities to shoppers, restaurants goers and commuters, join Place North West to debate these challenges and more.
Transport for the North and Merseyrail will be among the organisations sharing their planned investment and offering views on policies shaping the region’s networks.
Salford City Council will explain how transport is central to its recently launched new vision for the city and will underpin the city’s economic future.
Transport + Infrastructure is due to take place online on Friday 21 May 2021.
