    The address will examine how, as engineers, we need to make connections and networks across the industry; highlighting some catalysts that inspire step change, pushing us outside the boxes we may have created for ourselves. The address will also look at what the Railway Division should focus on to broaden the horizons of our engineers and engineering organisations as we move to meet the challenges we face on the journey to becoming Great Britain’s Railway.

    Crossrail, the project has a central section which has platform screen doors on the underground stations and a metro style signalling system with ATO; this interfaces with many other systems including the tunnel ventilation system. This and many other systems need to be properly integrated into the whole railway system before Crossrail, the project, can become the Elizabeth line, the operating railway.

    After 25 years of compound growth our railway network had become crowded and congested place. This pandemic has pressed the reset button. We now have both the opportunity, and the imperative, to reimagine a better railway in the future. This presentation will explore the context of the railway at this moment in time and discuss the opportunity to Build Back Better, Faster and Greener. GTR has declared its ambition to change its business.
