Business Engagement and Travel Planning - LondonBook Now
Start Date:15/11/2018 09:00
End Date:15/11/2018 17:00
Event Code:PTRC0550

From reducing congestion and solo car use, to making the workforce healthier and happier, promoting good leadership in the community, making business cost savings, improving accessibility to work sites to lowering CO2 emissions… travel plans offer such a wide range of benefits that many local authorities have developed travel planning programmes that cover not only the workplace situation, but also schools, residential areas, zonal areas and even individuals. Whilst they are undoubtedly an effective tool for securing outcomes from the development planning process, are travel plans the best way of engaging the business community?

This one day course explores the motivational factors behind workplace engagement in behavioural change programmes, equipping practitioners with a tried and tested toolkit for use in developing their own engagement programmes.

Cycling Infrastructure Design - LondonBook Now
Start Date:16/11/2018 09:00
End Date:16/11/2018 17:00
Event Code:PTRC0548
Description:Cycling is quickly becoming established as a mainstream mode of transport, especially in our larger cities. All the evidence point to its benefits: quicker journeys in urban areas, improved access to jobs and services, reduced congestion, better health and liveability. Getting more people, of all ages and abilities, onto bikes is a key ingredient in the recipe for delivering better, more competitive and more progressive cities.

Retro-fitting high quality cycling infrastructure is a significant challenge for engineers. Restricted space, UK driving rules and culture and political support are key challenges.

This course explores different approaches to making cycling feel convenient and safe in urban areas, illustrated by case studies of innovative cycle infrastructure design. We will help you to understand how to plan networks and interventions to suit different circumstances. We will show the best available methods for designing for cyclists at junctions, main roads and quieter streets.
