Industry Issues: Improving visibility of work pipeline

Recent liaison meetings have seen members have face-to-face discussions with Chief Executives, Procurement and Commercial Directors as well as a range of technical staff from organisations including:

  • North East Combined Authority
  • Tees Valley Combined Authority
  • Network Rail
  • Highways England
  • Transport for the North
  • Department for Transport
  • Department of Business, Innovation and Skills
