Transport director Peter Jenkins will join a panel of industry experts for a round table discussion on the transport sector and why it is important to the success of the northern powerhouse. Organised by Insider it will explore the calls to improve the transport infrastructure in the north and the suggested One North plan to offer faster links on the trans-Pennine and Newcastle lines and better access to Manchester airport.
