12:00 PM – 1:30 PM BST This event is free to attend.
The current system of transport appraisal has been described as not fit for purpose, with many weak, incorrect or outdated assumptions. The climate crisis has brought the failings of the current approach to carbon in particular into sharp focus. The tension between the government’s transport decarbonisation strategy on the one hand and their continued funding of expensive and controversial road schemes on the other, suggests the need for an urgent rethink of the appraisal approach. This webinar will discuss the issues with the current system and how best to reform it.
This is the first in a new series of webinars showcasing the work funded by the Foundation for Integrated Transport (FIT). This webinar includes presentations from FIT’s senior Fellows, Professor Phil Goodwin and Professor John Whitelegg, and a panel discussion, including Professor Jillian Anable, chaired by FIT Trustee Mark Frost.
