Since the beginning of the railways in the 1800’s, engineering for railways has been rolled out on a grand scale with brick, stone, steel and concrete. It has enabled huge changes in human society.
However, increasingly it is relatively ‘invisible’ engineering, based on electronics and data, that is shaping railways of the future, ones which increases capacity and performance more sustainably.
Three short presentations will focus on how modern technology is influencing current developments in railway engineering, and what the future holds both for medium term improvements and long-term aspirations that will enable railways to support the sustainable development of human society for subsequent generations.
We will examine this theme with speakers covering ‘classic’ conventional railways, high speed rail and London’s latest metro Crossrail. This will be followed by a Q&A session with the audience to discuss future developments.
Delegates will also have the opportunity to network and continue the discussions over drinks in the ICE Café Bar sponsored by Costain.
