Transport and the Olympic legacy: driving innovation

6.30–9.00pm 11 September 2012

UCL Cruciform Lecture Theatre 1
Blurred bus

Extra pressure on London's transport systems during the Olympics is forcing both the public and private sectors to try innovative ways to spread demand and use the road and rail networks more efficiently, from new delivery patterns to greater use of the web and twitter. This event will look at some of the successful innovations which ensured that the goods were delivered and that people got around during the Olympics, and that can be built upon to improve ways in which transport is delivered in London in the future.

Chaired by Prof Peter Jones (UCL Transport & Sustainable Development)

Presentations and Panel discussion:

  • Dr Andy Chow, (Lecturer in Transport Studies, UCL Centre for Transport Studies)
  • Dr Jon Reades, Research Associate, UCL Centre for Advanced Spacial Analysis

Followed by a drinks reception in the UCL South Cloisters
