This event has now ended


This is the third joint event in the CILT/CIHT/ICE Wales Tri-Institute series of collaboratively organised webinars.

These are aimed at members in Wales and further afield in upskilling and building awareness and practical application of skills facing the professional disciplines today. 

This webinar is of particular interest given the cross border connectivity of North Wales between the Republic of Ireland and the North West/West Midlands regions concerning the movement of goods and people.

This event will cover the work of the North Wales Transport Commission and its report which was published in December 2023. This is a seminal report for North Wales and was the 2nd transport commission in Wales following the South East Wales Transport Commission led by Lord Burns who also chaired this commission context.

The lead speaker for this event will be Ashley Rogers who was one of the transport commissioners team appointed to develop the North Wales Transport Commission Report under Lord Burns and subsequently was appointed in 2024 to be the chair of the North Wales Regional Delivery Group.

Ashley will cover in this webinar, the background, development of and next steps of the North Wales Transport Commission report.
