SoRSA Conference

Author: Andreas Markides Posted: 27 June 2017

I was fortunate enough to be invited to the SoRSA (Society of Road Safety Officers) Annual Conference in Birmingham last month. This was a 2-day event which brought together nearly 200 professionals from across the country who are employed in safety work. I was struck by the delegates’ professionalism and passion for what they do. SoRSA is a fundamental part of CIHT and we are grateful as well as proud of their contribution to our activities and to the profession in general.

Did you know…

Eddington is the University of Cambridge’s ‘’exemplary sustainable community’’ on the NW edge of the city. When fully developed by 2027, it will provide 3,000 homes and 2,000 student bedrooms.
The greenest aspect of Eddington is that car travel(and even owning a car) is strongly discouraged. Every new resident has a meeting with a travel planner who advises on alternatives to driving.
There is only one parking space for every four or five flats reserved for university staff, who will occupy half the 3,000 homes. Renting a parking space costs £85/month and only a handful of the first hundred residents have so far bought a car.
Even the luxury homes have no driveways and visitors arriving by car will have to pay for parking if they stay more than 90 minutes. A total of 12,000 bike spaces will be provided for a development of 8,500 residents.
