Future Cities Forum was delighted that Dyan Crowther, CEO of HS1, opened our 'Infrastructure 2020' forum, discussing the economic, environmental and social impact of high speed rail.

High Speed 1 holds the concession to own and operate the high speed railway as well as running the stations along the route, including one of the very few that merits icon status, St Pancras International. Dyan spoke about the impact the railway has on communities, economy and environment and the crucial role that high speed rail now plays globally in connecting cities and regions. She also explained how the rail sector has helped to drive significant economic growth internationally, and domestically especially across the county of Kent.
