About this event

The construction and operation of the HS2 East Midlands Hub at Toton will provide an opportunity for economic stimulus to the area, and link in with the wider transportation strategy outlined by Midlands Connect.

However, key decisions regarding the station layout will be crucial in enabling appropriate multi-model connectivity for future operations, whether from conventional rail, tram, bus, car, or cycle.

There has already been much background work carried out via East Midlands Councils and Broxtowe Borough Council and our speakers will outline the growth strategy for the hub and current proposals to ensure connectivity. They will also lay down a challenge for the local engineering profession to provide the required skills and expertise that will enable the construction of this key infrastructure and benefit the local economy.
