About this event

Join us for an informal Business Breakfast event, where Michelle Scogings, Network Rail Western Route team, will be present to discuss current transport issues and upcoming projects. Michelle is a very experienced Senior Programme Development Manager and has been heavily involved with rail projects in the Bristol area over a number of years, including the works around Swindon station as part of the GWR electrification programme.

Charlotte Leslie MP is a vocal campaigner for rail, and in November last year secured a debate in Westminster where she and other MPs expressed their concern on the deferral of parts of the Great Western Mainline electrification project.

Charlotte said: "There is deep concern that the recent Government announcement over electrification deferral yet again appears to leave the South West region trailing behind other areas of the country in terms of transport infrastructure investment.

"This is a region that boasts exciting opportunities, is fast-growing, and desperately needs the kind of focus on rail investment that we have seen in HS2 and Crossrail."

This business breakfast will be an opportunity for members to network and discuss with colleagues concerns and solutions around transport links and connectivity in and around Bristol.

Breakfast will be available at 8am.
