NCE Events

IT IS not just on main line rail where there is much to debate.

Every week the long-running sagas that are Leeds Supertram, Merseytram, Manchester Metrolink and South Hampshire Rapid Transit take another turn.

What is happening with light rail funding- Charged with answering this humdinger at Civils 2005 is FaberMaunsell director of rail Malcolm Taylor.

ondon Underground is also a subject of keen interest, with track maintenance and upgrading work momentarily eclipsed by failing brakes on trains. PPP contractors Tube Lines and Metronet are fighting a daily battle to improve engineering and maintain services.

But London's big transport budget means there is more to the Tube than the PPPs.

London Underground infrastructure systems engineer Mike Gellatly will be at Civils 2005 to explain the opportunities and challenges outside the PPPs.
