Event Details

The North East Area Council invites members to our Annual General Meeting, following which we welcome Tim Wood, Northern Powerhouse Director, Transport for the North, who will talk to members about Northern Powerhouse Rail.

Northern Powerhouse Rail is a major rail programme designed to unlock the economic potential of the North. It will transform rail services making it easier to move between the region’s towns and cities. Featuring new and significantly upgraded railway lines, it will be the region’s single biggest transport investment since the Industrial Revolution.

This event will be of particular relevance to those who are interested in transport planning, as well as those who are studying on one of the IRO courses.  Light refreshments will be available, kindly supplied by Tracsis.

AGM 16:00hrs, followed by refreshments at 17:00hrs and presentation at 17:30hrs. Please note that you should aim for a prompt arrival, as the reception area at the Academy will not be manned after 17:30hrs.


No need to book, but please email ne.events@railwayoperators.co.uk if you have any dietary or other requirements.  Members are requested to bring along with them their membership cards.
