We are thrilled to be attending this year’s UKTram & LRSSB Light Rail Summit. Having worked in partnership with UKTram for many years, we are looking forward to attending this event that brings together global industry experts, operations and enthusiasts to discuss the future of Light Rail.

19th September 2024

IET Birmingham

The key focus for the forum is the safety and security on the UK’s light rail networks, and this annual summit provides the opportunity for topical debates amongst leaders within the sector. The full agenda can be accessed here, and we look forward to hearing from our customer Keolis Amey Metrolink, as well as James Hammett, Managing Director at UKTram.

Amber Hart, Head of New Business (EMEA) and Oliver Reeves, Account Manager, will be attending this year’s summit. Amber recently presented at the European Light Rail Congress, and is delighted to have been asked to present at the summit. The presentation will provide insight into the importance of asset and maintenance management for ensuring the long-term feasibility and sustainability of a light rail system.

As technology continues to advance, the role of software in promoting sustainability in transportation systems will likely become even more significant. Amber’s presentation will focus on the role of asset management software, predictive maintenance practices and software, energy management software, and planning and scheduling software, and various strategic themes available for light rail organisations will also be discussed. Agility CMMS is used globally by light rail organisations, where users benefit from reduced admin time, improved labour utilisation, and better response times. Many light rail customers use Agility in the Control Room, which provides a platform for event and fault logging. To find out more about how light rail organisations use Agility, please see our case studies.

All tickets for the summit have been allocated, however a waiting list has been created in case any places become available. More details on how to get added to the list can be found here.
