This year’s Smart Transport Conference, held at the Eastside Rooms in Birmingham, will focus on the theme of ‘transforming the UK’s transport network together’. The event’s packed two-day agenda of plenary sessions and breakout streams focus on roads, active travel and public transport with themes including: unpacking the Government’s decarbonisation strategy, identifying what future UK transport systems will look like, how to get public buy-in when launching clean air initiatives, freight solutions (including modal shift and last-mile delivery) and key insights into the national evaluation of e-scooters.
It will also spotlight integrated ticketing and Mobility as a Service (MaaS) and explore the future electric vehicle charging infrastructure and how it will be developed to support the envisaged roll out of EVs.
Sessions will look at what the levelling-up agenda means for investment in transport infrastructure, how hydrogen applications could fast-track UK transport’s pursuit of net zero, how we meet the challenge of positioning roads in a net zero world, the future of parking and kerbside management and developing an effective transport network to service rural areas.
Various best practice active travel case studies from around the world are also planned throughout the two days. The conference will also launch an exclusive new networking event on the first night called ‘Smart Transport After Hours’.
Session speakers include:
- Richard Dilks, chief executive, CoMoUK
- Renee van Barr, principal transport planner (rural mobility lead) Midlands Connect
- Oz Choudri, head of mobility solutions, UK & Ireland, Enterprise Holdings
