Regeneration, Congestion, Sustainability and Behaviour Change. To be held at the Hallam Conference Centre
44 Hallam Street, London W1.
For those involved in transport planning, research and practice 2011 and 2012 will prove to be a challenge to their skills. Transport plays a key role in regeneration and there will be particular pressure to produce innovative and cost-effective solutions to congestion, safety and travel behaviour change at a time of major budget constraint.
This national conference and TV broadcast will focus on the needs of local government officers and politicians to ensure that sustainable, environmental friendly, affordable travel is achieved. Attendees will hear from Government, sector leaders and academics who will inform on best practice and future policy developments. This is the ‘must attend’ event for anyone working in local travel planning.
