Seminar aims to make case for HS2

Consultant Parsons Brinckerhoff is to team up with High Speed 2 promoter HS2 Ltd and the Institution of Engineering and Technology to champion the case for UK high speed rail.

The collaboration will produce a programme of knowledge dissemination events on the delivery of high speed rail in the UK, starting with a technical seminar in London next month.

The seminar will feature presentations from senior HS2 specialists and industry experts from around the world and is targeted at senior railway industry professionals, transport providers, operators and engineers.

HS2 Ltd technical director Andrew McNaughton will give the keynote speech.

Parsons Brinckerhoff head of rail Darren Reed said that sharing knowledge and experience was a “critical part” of developing a project as complex as HS2.

“HS2 offers a significant opportunity for the UK railway industry,” he said. “It will inspire a new generation of British engineers capable of exporting their skills to deliver advanced high speed rail systems and demanding infrastructure projects anywhere in the world.”

The London event on 12 September 12 will be followed by a similar event in Birmingham in early December. It will be followed by a series of regional seminars next year in Manchester, Leeds, the East Midlands and -Scotland or the north east.
