Technological and cultural advances shaping the future use of roads

FRIDAY 17 JULY 2020 09:30 - 10:30 (BST)  (rescheduled from 10 July)

A mobility revolution is unfolding before our eyes, but all of the people planning for 2050 were born closer to 1950. This startling panel of Gen-Y and Gen-Z thinkers will challenge your strategy, offering new insight on how to meet the transport needs for someone who is younger than the iPhone. In this session we unpack what road transport might look like in 2050 with clear messages for the road-sector Boomer on how to survive and thrive in this fast-changing world.
Our panelists will discuss wide ranging issues with valuable advice on:
  • The technological and cultural advances shaping the future
  • The human factors that limit AND expand the art of the possible
  • The values and attitudes that future generations will demand of the places that are currently being planned and built for them… by us

Introducing the Heartland Transport Strategy

TUESDAY 14 JULY 2020 11:00 (BST)

With its globally-renowned strengths in science and technological innovation, the Heartland is a vital asset for the UK, both during its recovery from the COVID-19 crisis and in the decades that follow.
As our experience during the pandemic has shown there is considerable scope to increase our use of flexible and remote working, to challenge received wisdom when it comes to the future for our transport system, and to do things differently.
This step-change in approach runs through the core of England’s Economic Heartland’s Transport Strategy, which is being published for consultation on July 14th.

Road Use is Changing Forever - UK's Leading Transport Experts Discuss

FRIDAY 29 MAY 2020, 09:30 (BST)

Getting society “back to normal” in a safe and controlled manner poses significant challenges for the roads sector.  And beyond this, Covid 19 has turned travel behaviour on its head. Active travel – walking and cycling – is undergoing a welcome revitalisation, but traditional public transport is currently discouraged over private travel. 
When we come out of this, the way people and goods move around towns, cities and regions will be fundamentally different. It is critical that the road infrastructure sector understands and gears itself up for enabling the inevitable change in the use of road space to support the new economic, health, social and environmental needs of the country.
This free to attend webinar from Highways UK brings together four of the UK’s leading transport experts to drill down into the here and now of mitigating the short-term impacts while rethinking the future of transport and the implications for road space in the long-term.
