Invitation from the ICE Retired Members, to the IMechE and the IET.
In order to make the most of the economic opportunity created by HS2, it is essential to carefully consider station design, both in terms of location, integration with the surrounding urban fabric and with the wider transport network. The speakers will be discussing the latest developments and the challenges involved with integrating a High Speed rail station into a dense urban area.
Lunch will be available after the lecture (cost TBC; pre-book only & payable on the day).
Booking is essential for this event.
