CIHT London is delighted to offer this thought-provoking webinar, with speakers Mark Stevens, from the London Borough of Haringey, and Ayanda Collins, from Smart Transport Hub.
Understanding the evidence on the impact of Low Traffic Neighbourhoods (LTN) on communities is an important part of their successful delivery. A comprehensive review of LTN rollout in London has been published by Centre for London and there are lots of research and evidence to support LTNs and the positive impact they can have on communities.
However, LTNs have recently made headlines as central government intend to place more scrutiny in their implementation and possibly reviewing existing LTNs. Several local authorities have altogether removed previously installed LTNs, and this may be a continuing trend in some locations.
On this Lunch and Learn webinar, the presenters will explain the effects of Low Traffic Neighbourhoods, School Streets and Liveable Neighbourhoods taking you through the understanding of these traffic management strategies, how they are implemented and how communities can be engaged throughout the process, from planning to post-implementation monitoring.
This event is aim at those with an interest in the development and implementation of Low Traffic Neighbourhoods, School Streets and Liveable Neighbourhoods, essential ingredients to the concept of 15 Minute Cities.
Delving into the understanding of why they are an essential traffic management tool in reducing the disbenefits of traffic and road congestion to neighbourhoods and improving our communities.
This is open to all at various stages of their career; from students through to experienced professionals.
