The DevoTransport Masterclass

4th July 10:00 - 12:30

Training Workplace, 4th Floor, Churchgate House, 56 Oxford St, Manchester M1 6EU

A more devolved approach to transport makes sense and devolution is laying the foundation for real transformation in the way that transport is delivered.  Our cities are undergoing significant changes in the way they manage transport and how they are connected. The North of England, in particular, has seen major changes in devolved policy areas with the establishment of the new statutory body, Transport for the North, as well as the promise of HS2 and Northern Powerhouse Rail.

This unique DevoTransport Masterclass will help you connect with strategic transport plans and demonstrate how connectivity will be transformed for future generations.  Discover how you and your organisation can be part of this transition. We will help you to understand:

  • Why transport is so important for City Region Mayors?
  • What are the specific powers and funding that they control?
  • How will the £840 million Transforming Cities Fund be distributed and used?
  • Who are the main decision makers and how can you influence them?
  • The trend towards sub-national transport bodies and in particular Transport for the North
