The ARA’s New Zealand Rail 2018 will take place at the Pullman Hotel Auckland on the 14 and 15 June 2018.
The economic value of rail to New Zealand was recently calculated to be approximately $1.47b to $1.54b per annum. With New Zealand’s transport sector preparing for a period of rapid technological change, it is very important to understand the drivers of sustainable and inclusive growth and rail’s role in a connected transport future. This year’s ARA New Zealand Rail conference will bring together key industry and government stakeholders, customers, researchers and suppliers to discuss the economic, social and environmental benefits and future opportunities of rail in connecting transport, people, goods and services.
Featuring keynotes, case studies from Australia and New Zealand, interactive panel sessions and the Young Rail Professionals Pitching Competition, topics to be addressed include:
- New Zealand’s economic, environmental and social sustainability
- Transport and rail policy, planning and investment updates
- Mode neutral integrated transport solutions
- Regional growth and development
- Urban development and transport solutions for liveable communities
- Metro rail
- Passenger rail
- Skills for the future
- Women and diversity in rail
- Role of new and emerging technologies
- Customer priorities and perspectives
