Crossrail International’s Martin Buck and Rebecca Venn were amongst a distinguished audience of delegates attending a recent international transport forum held in Lima, Peru.

With the theme of “Good practice in management models and structuring of mass transport projects”, the event was organised and hosted by Peru’s Ministry of Transport and Communications (MTC) in association with the Autonomous Metro Authority for Lima and Callao (AATE), and the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), the largest source of development financing for Latin America.

The two-day forum, held on 28/29 March 2019 at the Lima Convention Centre, included guest speakers from Latin America (Brazil, Chile, Ecuador), Europe (France, UK), Asia (Japan, South Korea), and North America (Canada, USA), who were invited to share their best practice experiences in the design and management of mass transit projects at municipal, regional and national levels. The forum was designed to help inform and shape Peru’s thinking in light of the recently created Urban Transport Authority (ATU) which will oversee all urban transport for Lima and Callao, a first for the region.

The European focus for the forum was provided by the UK and France, with Crossrail International’s Martin Buck introducing best practice on the Crossrail programme in association with Transport for London (TfL).

“We’ve been working with AATE for around 12 months to understand how transport is being developed in Lima,” said Martin. “We look forward to building our relationship and being able to offer our expert advice for the development, management and construction of Lima’s future metro network.”
