LRT ENGINEERING EXCELLENCE 2017
At last year’s event hosted by Blackpool Transport and supported by UKTram, guests at the Imperial Hotel engaged in debate on key issues, fostering the exchange of best practice between engineers and the supply chain at a time of unprecedented expansion and growth in passenger numbers across the UK’s systems. The nation’s tramway and metro systems carried in excess of 250 million passengers last year, covering over 21 million miles.
Delegates were also treated to guided tours of both Blackpool Transport depots: Starr Gate is the state-of-the-art £20m facility completed as part of the modernisation programme in 2011 that houses the system’s Flexity 2 fleet; Rigby Road is home to the system’s unique heritage fleet and has a rich history dating back over 80 years.
The day was rounded off in style with fish n’ chips – what else when at the seaside? – and networking that continued well into the evening.
