Project Centre at National Air Quality Conference
At the National Air Quality Conference, local authorities, businesses and other members of the industry come together to discuss tackling one of the most prevalent issues today. The sheer amount of toxic air being detected in urban areas is causing avoidable deaths and medical problems. As a result, there is a change in priority in the urban design and transport spheres to combat the current crisis. At the conference, like minded experts can discuss their thoughts on best practice and network their ideas in the best forum possible.
The conference attracts several prominent specialists such as academics from King’s College London, representatives from the Freight Transport Association, Centre for Cities, British Lung Foundation and of course, TfL.
It is then no surprise that our Technical Director of Transport Planning, Nick Ruxton-Boyle, is in attendance. He and his team have pioneered much of the UK’s Workplace Parking Levies which seek to promote cleaner, safer and greener methods of travel alongside their input with the London based Liveable Neighbourhoods scheme and Low Emission Zones. Our teams are passionate about creating sustainable spaces and an increasingly crucial aspect of this is finding solutions to air pollution.
We hope the conference’s array of speakers discussing Ultra Low Emission Zones, national Clean Air Zones, vehicle free cities and many more topics can act as a point of inspiration for our own projects.
