European Light Rail Congress 2023 Highlights

Darren Smith, Commercial Director of Transport Design International and Tim Burleigh, Head of External Relations at Eversholt Rail recently attended Mainspring’s European Light Rail Congress 2023.

As proud sponsors of the event we were excited to present Revolution VLR: The future is Very Light Rail. This was followed by a panel discussion on “Game changing technology: What do we need to take VLR to the next level?” alongside Steve Jasper, Director, Pre Metro.

All who attended the European Light Rail Congress brought insightful questions and contributed to the conversation of Very Light Rail. If you missed our presentation or would like to know more about Revolution VLR, you can learn more below.

It was a pleasure and privilege to present and take part in the p[anel discussion at the European Light Rail Congress. We were delighted that or presentation was so well received and attracted many insightful questions. It was fascinating to learn more about the evolving light rail opportunities across Europe. It became clear that the experience we have already gained with Revolution VLR could be applied to benefit other programmes.
