This report complements and builds upon the Royal Academy of Engineering’s Transport Congestion Challenge paper (Nov 2015), using the expertise of our Railway Division membership active throughout the UK rail industry.
This report consists of five short papers which look at UK freight's key issues: future-proofing the transport network, creating a joined-up approach, the introduction of new technologies, environmental impact and skills challenges.
This BDO report, produced in partnership with the Institution, examines what Industry 4.0 is and why it is relevant, what other countries are doing in this space and what the important next developments are.
We suggest a fresh approach to integrated transport policy to reduce congestion.
In this policy statement we look at the increase in demand for public transport from older people as the UK's demographics change.
In this report we outline how Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) could help improve the safety of our transport networks, cut congestion and reduce the environmental impact of travelling.
This report examines the advantages and challenges of using rail to move goods, and highlights the need for a holistic rail strategy to meet the needs of the railway passenger and freight sectors on our network.
