Talking business in Manchester

"Businesses in Manchester absolutely understand, recognise and demand that transport is part of their reason to create better outcomes for their employees and the markets they serve."

We received strong and candid feedback from business leaders in Manchester last week on some of the fundamental challenges and strategic opportunities the railway brings for them.

Our lead director Anit Chandarana listened to leaders from across the North West talk about the ways in which they feel rail reform could help them by:

  • delivering on the basics: a clean, reliable and safe service
  • giving staff more confidence to travel into the office by public transport
  •  unlock greater economic growth and productivity over the long-term
