Transport and the Olympic Legacy: driving innovation
Tuesday 11 September, 6.30 – 9pm
Lecture followed by drinks reception
Extra pressure on London’s transport systems during the Olympics is forcing both the public and private sectors to try innovative ways to spread demand and use the road and rail networks more efficiently, from new delivery patterns to greater use of the web and twitter. This event will look at some of the successful innovations which ensured that the goods were delivered and that people got around during the Olympics, and that can be built upon to improve ways in which transport is delivered in London in the future.
The discussion will be chaired by Prof Peter Jones, UCL Transport & Sustainable Development and confirmed panellists include: Michèle Dix, Director of Planning at Transport for London; Natalie Chapman, Head of Policy at the Freight Transport Association; and Dr Andy Chow, Lecturer at the UCL Centre for Transport Studies
