CIHT Cymru Wales - THINK: Transport and Health Integrated Research Network

CIHT Cymru Wales is delighted to host this webinar with Aberystwyth University and Public Health Wales to introduce THINK: Transport and Health Integrated Research Network. THINK has been created to bring together people working in transport and health from policy, practice and academia, developing skills, experience and knowledge, generating new practice-orientated research and getting research into practice.


We will introduce the different themes that THINK focuses on in transport and health and some of the methods we are using to develop a community of practice in transport and health involving various stakeholders, which the audience are welcome to join. We will present three case study projects of research and policy development the core THINK team is involved in to highlight the work we’re involved in and to give an insight into transport and health.

  • Charles Musselwhite will present “Transport and Health in a Rural Context”; a theme of work THINK has around how rurality might change the relationship between transport and health.

  • Sarah Jones will present the rationale for the links between transport and health and place this in the context of the change to the default speed limit in Wales in September 2023 to 20mph. 

  • Lucy Baker will present: ‘Gender+ Bus: tackling harassment, sexual harassment and violence against women for a gender-inclusive bus service in Wales and the UK’.
