Policy Forum for Northern Ireland

Priorities for transport infrastructure in Northern Ireland

March 2018

This timely seminar examined the future for infrastructure development in Northern Ireland, including how best to direct funding allocations to maximise economic objectives and develop an effective transport network for the future.

Delegates first considered the next steps for developing transport infrastructure to meet growing population demands in Northern Ireland and shifting public attitudes to public transport. Delegates then examined the history of transport infrastructural development, the context of current and future developments in this area.

Further sessions looked at the latest thinking in tackling challenges to completing major infrastructure projects such as the A5, A6 and the York Street Interchange. Sessions also considered the future of North-South collaboration, the challenges that judicial reviews place on the development of transport infrastructure, regional balance in infrastructure investment and priorities for long-term investment and strategic planning for transport infrastructure in Northern Ireland post-Brexit.

Shortly after every Policy Forum for Northern Ireland seminar, a briefing document is produced. This is distributed to all delegates on the day as well as to our policymaker contacts in government, and to stakeholders more widely.

A seminar publication provides a timely record of proceedings, and acts as a guide to the latest thinking on current policy issues for those unable to be at the event.
