Our cities are constantly evolving. As our nations urbanise, and our cities become larger, the urban fabric becomes more complex, and so transport infrastructure, existing and new, must anticipate this and promote a better quality life for all.
But, investing in transport is not only about building new links, purchasing new stock and raising new stations. Many cities have to work within an existing framework and infrastructure, that may need modernisation, “fixing”, adjustment or improvement. In some cities, poorly planned investments , even after a major investment cannot be demolished and so need to be integrated to play a meaningful role in the short term, and perhaps even the long term too.
Join our next #CityTalk as we put our minds together to look at ways in which our cities can fix transport to ensure a more liveable and sustainable future for all of its citizens.
