27febAll DayFuture StreetsType of Event:Conference

Event Details

In the light of changing living and working patterns, low carbon planning and rapid technological advances, Future Streets will explore street design, road-space allocation, travel modes, accessibility, activity and regulation.

Emerging travel trends and transport technologies bring new spatial demands for street use and, by extension, all vehicles, modes and activities. Despite broadening knowledge and experiences of these trends, urban design and planning implications remain poorly articulated and understood, so inhibiting proactive policy and planning interventions.

Issues will include:

  • Demand: digital TROs, ITS, open data and traffic flows
  • Non-vehicle accessibility: walking, cycling, micro-mobility, public transport
  • Dynamic allocation of street and kerb space, local freight hubs and first/last mile delivery options
  • Understanding patterns of street use
  • Supporting alternative social, commercial, and cultural activities
  • Adapting to shared, electric, and autonomous transport technology

The Transport Knowledge Hub comes at a vital time for our transport networks. As our population continues to grow and our roads become more congested, public transport has an increasingly important role to play in keeping our country moving. Investment in local transport infrastructure, such as rail networks and bus services, can have a huge impact on development and economic growth in local areas, so I’m delighted that the Hub will provide the guidance and expertise local decision makers need to make effective investments.

Sir Peter Hendy, Chairman of Network Rail
