Heathrow CEO John Holland-Kaye in a morning session will outline how the airport's third runway will boost connectivity within the UK and internationally.
He says: “Heathrow expansion is about more than just a runway. It is about opportunities for our local community, inside and outside the airport’s boundary. It is about securing the country’s economy and connecting the whole of the UK to global growth. And it is about legacy – building the infrastructure today that our children will need for tomorrow."
HS2 CEO Mark Thurston will speak on “How HS2 will improve connectivity and transform rail capacity”, while Network Rail managing director, digital railway David Waboso is scheduled to speak at session two of the conference on “How the digital railway can be transformational”.
