IRO Area

Event Details

Colin Robey, a long serving member of the IRO, former Head of Operations at Centro and now Managing Director for UK Trams, will be talking to us about the Birmingham Tram system and some of the challenges it has faced since becoming a focal point of the city centre.

Following on from a visit in 2015 to the Centro Tram Depot at Wednesbury and a presentation on ‘Midland Metro – the future’ in the same year, we welcome Colin who will be able to give us the next instalment in this major transport development in the area.

Some of the topics covered will be current operation, plans for future extension, passenger feedback and safety incidents and changes following on from the tragic incident in East Croyden last year. As usual there will also be a question and answer session at the end of the session.

If you would like to attend please contact m.secretary@railwayoperators.co.uk

Entrance to the building can be found on the corner of Pinfold Street and Navigation Street, where you will be met at the door by a member of the committee.
