Lucy Marstrand chairs session for Walking and Cycle Innovations conference
Landor’s annual Walking and Cycle Innovations conference features an array of workshops and speakers who focus on a diverse array of aspects under the topic of walking and cycling. These include questions and answer sessions, showcases by leading innovators and workshops on tactical urbanism. This week, we were delighted to see Lucy Marstrand, our Principal Transport Planner, chair a session.
This session involved four different speakers; Mark Strong, who talked about network planning such as Manchester Beelines which enable activities, Jonathon Flower, from Westminster University who focused on research into people’s attitudes towards changing the Highway Code to give way on Turning, Toby Cotton on creating a more Strategic Road Network and lastly, Malcom Morgan from Leeds University on the Propensity to Cycle Tool and how to prioritise what you build and where.
These discussions created a diverse and impressive range of ideas which all satisfied the criteria of innovation. We are very encouraged by the amount of people who provided their insights and we await next year’s conference which will undoubtably be as exciting.
