UKTram makes the case for light rail investment

Light rail industry body UKTram has released a new video designed to highlight the economic argument for further investment in light rail. The promotional film was launched at the latest UK Light Rail Conference, held in Manchester on  23-24 July.

UKTram Managing Director James Hammett, explained: “The potential of light rail to deliver clean, reliable and efficient public transport is rising up the political agenda and it’s important we don’t miss the opportunity to help transform the cities of the future.

“Covering nearly 200 miles, used by nearly 300m passengers every year and attracting significant inward investment, our existing tramways are clearly a success story worth shouting about.”
