A Rail Conference for the East
Much has changed since the Great Eastern Mainline Campaign business case was published in 2014: the new franchise is well underway with the imminent arrival of our new trains providing additional capacity; Greater Anglia is developing a new timetable; Local Authorities have updated their local plans; and Local Enterprise Partnerships have published revised economic growth strategies. There has also been changes in the way rail investment is allocated by Government.
To determine how this delivers against the ambitions of the Taskforce, New Anglia LEP are undertaking a refresh of the evidence base to identify what the investment priorities are for the Great Eastern Mainline and when these need to be delivered to fully realise the full potential of our region.
This free to attend rail conference provides an ideal opportunity to bring you up to speed with this work and how you can help support their renewed case for investment.
With key speakers, including MPs, businesses and the franchise operator Greater Anglia – this really is an opportunity to help shape our future direction and ensure that our campaign continues to achieve the outcomes that passengers and our economy need and deserve.
Thank you for your continued support and encouragement as we work together to continue the transformation of our railway.
The conference will be held at:
Civic Centre, Duke Street, Chelmsford, CM1 1JE
