The profession has come a long way from the humble track circuit and this webinar will bring the viewer up to date with emerging  technologies being innovatively applied in the rail sector as well as those developments from the broader transport sector. Whether at concept design of a signalling scheme through to the development of a future asset strategy, this seminar will both inform and promote debate as it concludes with an expert panel and an invited audience from a wide range of stakeholders.

To facilitate the greatest opportunity to engage with the presenters and the expert panel session, the event is provided as an interactive webinar for £20 (IRSE members and members of other professional engineering institutions) and £25 non members - this fee covers access via livestream during the event and on-demand afterwards.  Joining instructions and access passwords will be sent via email prior to the livestream.
