Description

Scottish Transport Engineering has been specifically designed to look at the strategy for the next 3-5 years including in depth analysis of the Scottish Transport Projects Review with guidance on how to influence this hugely important piece of research. The conference will address the potential problem areas of funding and delivering the projects from a personnel point of view and will outline potential solutions.

Benefits of attending….
Gain an insight into the future strategy for Scottish Transport
Influence the Scottish Transport Projects Review first hand
Be part of a debate looking at solutions to a potential staffing shortage
Receive confirmation from Transport Scotland about where the funding will come from
Discover the infrastructure requirements around the Commonwealth Games
Take an in depth look at the proposals for the Forth Replacement Crossing
Key developments include the proposed Forth Replacement Crossing and requirements around the winning bid for the Commonwealth Games. Add into the mixer the tram in Edinburgh, the Borders rail link, the M74 extension and the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route and you can see that there are many opportunities to be taken advantage of. It is imperative that you are equipped with as much information as possible about these new projects so that your organisation can make informed decisions about how best to maximise your involvement.
In November 2007 the Scottish Government announced an influx of investment into new rail and road schemes in Scotland. To be more precise, more than 3 billion pounds will be invested in major Scottish infrastructure projects in the next few years.

Expert Speaker: Stewart Stevenson MSP, Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Climate Change, The Scottish Transport
