The new date for this event is Monday, 17th May from 4- 5pm.
Public transport has a key role in facilitating productivity growth and prosperity. Better transport connections can attract new jobs to a struggling town, enable residents to access good jobs in a nearby area, and allow businesses to cooperate across a wider geographic area. This event will consider how investment in the UK’s transport infrastructure can aid in levelling up our towns and cities.
