Rail News – Early August 2021

A major new body of research argues a lack of urgency and vision on delivery of transport infrastructure across the North and Midlands is undermining “levelling up”.

It warns that without greater connectivity within and between cities, as well as into HS2 and the rest of the national rail network, city regions will continue to lag behind.

Jointly commissioned by not-for-profit trade bodies Sheffield Property Association and London Property Alliance, which together represent over 500 leading property companies across South Yorkshire and London, the paper, authored by global real estate advisor JLL, has issued a 10-point-plan to build back better.

The report makes a series of recommendations to Government based on a study of rapid-transit systems in cities across Europe and in North America.
