Infrarail poised to ExCel

The Government’s launch of the National Infrastructure Commission (NIC) provides a further boost for Infrarail 2016 – next April in London.

Chaired by former Transport Secretary Lord Adonis, the NIC will oversee some £100 billion of infrastructure spending by 2020. Among its initial priorities will be plans to transform the connectivity of cities in northern England, including the HS3 rail line.

The NIC will also examine priorities for future large-scale investment in London’s public transport infrastructure.

With work on Phase One of the HS2 high-speed line between London and the West Midlands moving closer, long- term prospects for suppliers of railway infrastructure products and services are looking good. This optimism is reflected in stand bookings at Infrarail 2016, which takes place at ExCeL London.
