RTSA NZ Chapter Event (Webinar) – Rail in Transition

May 27 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm UTC+12

The Draft New Zealand Rail Plan has signalled a significant increase of financial investment in the rail sector and sets out high level proposals for a new planning and funding framework. Whilst very welcome, the challenge is to produce tactical and operational strategies to give effect to the strategic intent of the draft Plan.

The aim of “Rail in Transition” is to provide a thought provoking presentation which will stimulate further ideas and actions for a developing a sustainable long term industry approach to capacity and capability in the rail sector; and to put New Zealand on the global map!

Presenter: James Llewellyn

James Llewellyn is Portfolio Manager for Rail at the NZ Transport Agency with responsibility for investment advice to support rail projects from the National Land Transport Fund (NLTF). James is a chartered transport planner who has significant rail sector experience in the UK, and is learning about how things work in New Zealand. James has ideas on how to develop a detailed long term planning and investment framework which aims to lead to better investment decisions whilst providing much greater confidence to the industry to develop technical capacity and capability. James is also proposing technical workstreams which will address some of the pan-New Zealand issues around issues such as data-led asset management, cyber security, carbon reduction and rolling stock procurement.
