Improving travel infrastructure to tackle mental health issues

View original

London City Airport has published a report on how improving designs at railway stations, airports and on roads could help tackle mental illness. The report states that “improvements in transport services could make a tangible difference to mental health for millions of people” by reducing delays, cancellations, anti-social behaviour and overcrowding and keeping passengers well-informed when there are disruptions to their travel. The report also shows that better designs could improve mental health by minimising noise, increasing natural light and making them easier to navigate.

The Transport Knowledge Hub is a fantastic resource and I’m really excited about the opportunity to explore how we can maximise its use among transport stakeholders. In the South East Midlands, investing in local transport infrastructure has unlocked significant economic growth. The Hub offers a formal framework for sharing expertise with decision makers around the UK, as well as learning from the experience of others. This will enable more investment to be directed towards  local and sustainable forms of transport.
