About this event

Due to unforeseen circumstances the lecture is unable to take place at the Bombardier site and will now be held at Manchester Metropolitan University Cheshire Campus. We are unable to provide transport following the Bombardier site visit to the University and for those without their own vehicle, it will be a 45 minute walk. Parking will be available at the university.

The North West Electrification Programme:

The electrification programme in the North West will see over 300km of lines electrified, improving connections between towns and cities in our region and beyond. The first two phases of electrification are now complete with passengers enjoying new electric services from Manchester Airport to Scotland, Liverpool, and between Huyton and Wigan with subsequent phases well underway.

The engineering team will give an overview of the background to the programme, how the option development and designs has been progressed, an overview of the finalised designs, the construction status and what the next steps are for the programme.

To take part in the tour of the works delegates are required to provide the following PPE: Hi viz vest, safety shoes, eye protection and bump cap

Please note that registration for this event is mandatory as you will not be able to access the site unless you have registered and completed the mandatory online training which will be sent out as part of the joining instructions after you have registered for the event.
