NWBLT CEO, Emma Degg took part in a panel alongside the mayors of the Liverpool City Region and Greater Manchester yesterday. The panel took place to highlight the launch of the report undertaken by Metro-Dynamics and sponsored by NWBLT member Peel. The report points out the challenges the region faces in the North West with regards to transport and infrastructure.
The panel discussions were varied focusing on infrastructure issues facing the region today – such as the recent problems with rail services, alongside more longer term issues that will impact the North West in the near and distant future, HS2 and Northern Powerhouse Rail for example. On this matter, Emma Degg made the point that these two projects, “are not exclusively Northern projects, rather they are projects that the entire UK economy depends.”
