Scotland's Railway: the impact of devolution on the Scottish railway system Dr Malcolm Reed CBE FCILT, Chief Executive, Transport Scotland
Hallam Street Conference Centre, 44 Hallam Street, London.
6.30pm, Thursday 5th February
Dr Malcolm Reed CBE FCILT, the Chief Executive of Transport Scotland will deliver this year's prestigious CILT Rail Lecture. He will be revealing how Scotland's railway system is developing under devolution and asking how does rail north of the border now compare to the system in the rest of the UK?
Transport professionals from north and south of the border will learn much from Dr Reed's insight into the new rail environment, which gives Scottish Ministers responsibility for specifying and funding both the ScotRail franchise and Network Rail's outputs in Scotland. He will explain Transport Scotland's functions in managing the Scottish Government's railway interests, and describe current development priorities.
Find out how Scotland's rail system might develop in a different direction to the rest of the UK, and what we can all learn from the experience, at this high profile lecture.
Malcolm Reed took up the post of Chief Executive of Transport Scotland in August 2005, after eight years as Director General of Strathclyde Passenger Transport Executive. He was appointed CBE in the 2004 New Years Honours for services to the transport industry.
The CILT Rail Lecture is presented annually in memory of Sir Robert Reid.
