Sept 15th 2017: Funding Transport Investment

Transport Knowledge Hub Events

The Transport Knowledge Hub hosted its first national seminar this Autumn, Funding Transport Investment. The event was chaired by Professor Tony Travers and speakers included KPMG’s Lewis Atter, TfL’s Julian Ware and Savills’ Rory Brooke.

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.
