“In looking to shape the future of our transport system we have a moment in time that empowers us to choose the way forward” says Martin Tugwell, Programme Director, England’s Economic Heartland, and President of the CIHT. “The connectivity that our transport system provides lies at the heart of enabling people to realise their potential and businesses being successful. In recent years we’ve seen a number of trends that challenge received wisdoms about the future of transport. The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated many of those trends. What it has also done is create the opportunity for us to choose the way forward”.
England’s Economic Heartland is the Sub-national Transport Body for an area stretching from Swindon to Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire to Hertfordshire, including the Oxford-Milton Keynes-Cambridge Arc. EEH has recently concluded the consultation on its draft Transport Strategy: a strategy that sets out a 30-year vision for the region’s transport system and builds on several pathways to decarbonisation. In his opening keynote at TRANSPORT Smart Class, London & South East England 2020, Martin shared the philosophy underpinning the strategy, explained how it will be implemented and expanded upon the impact of coronavirus on future transport.
