RIA Western Powerhouse Roundtable

RIA Western Powerhouse Roundtable
17 January 2019

In 2018, the UK Government set out its vision for a 'Western Powerhouse' that connects the cities of Cardiff, Bristol and Newport into a new economic hub.

Rail will be a vital part of this vision and the RIA Western Powerhouse Roundtable will bring together politicians, suppliers and stakeholders from across the region to discuss how this aim can be achieved.
