We often hear that HS2 and Northern Powerhouse Rail are much more than the development of tracks and stations. It will drive regeneration within our cities and regions and will 'eradicate' UK's north-south divide. If that's a realistic expectation, what is the vision for economic development and growth in each region? What opportunities will become available for the built environment and construction? Hear from industry experts on how to tackle challenges early to ensure join-up thinking, support innovation, and to maximise growth potential.
