What’s coming down the tracks for Scottish railways? Engineering a transformation of the network

21 April 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Speaker: Alex Hynes

Managing Director, Scotrail Alliance

This talk will examine the engineering challenges of modernising a largely Victorian railway, taking account of sustainability and environmental concerns. How can engineering help to improve the experience for passengers? What are the future aspirations for the service and what part will engineering play?
Alex Hynes has 20 years of rail industry experience. He took on his current role as managing director of the Scotrail Alliance in 2017, a role which has been described as one of the most pressurised, high profile jobs in the railway industry.
