The Western Rail Link to Heathrow is a nationally significant infrastructure project which could open up huge opportunities for many businesses stretching from South Wales to Slough. But, after the disruption COVID-19 has caused to the aviation industry and Brexit around the corner, the proposal faces further delays and challenges.

We’re thrilled to announce that Ruth Bagley, Director of Ardynt Consulting and former CEO of Slough Borough Council, who led the campaign for a Western Rail Link to Heathrow (WRLtH), will join Blake Morgan’s Head of Construction Richard Wade to present a construction focused webinar as part of our Brexit Virtual Conference.

Ruth’s insight into the importance of the rail link and challenges Brexit will cause for supply chains on large infrastructure projects will be fascinating. Register now to join us on Wednesday 25 November from 10 am.
