TPS Bursary Competition 2021 concludes

Following its launch last July, the Transport Planning Society Bursary Competition for 2021 has recently concluded. 

The latest competition on the topic of 'Scenario planning – how can Transport Planners best plan for the new normal?’ was a great success, attracting several extremely thoughtful and intelligent responses. 

The judges spent a lovely afternoon listening to the finalists present their papers and they, along with the Board of the Transport Planning Society, are delighted to announce that all of the three finalists will be awarded a bursary of £500 for their work.

The overall winner will be announced at the TPS AGM in March. 

The successful Bursarians for this year are: 

  • Liani Baglietto Castellares – Arup - 'Mitigation, adaptation and scenario planning for the development of an ‘anti-fragile’ transport system'.  
  • Julia Coonan – PJA – 'The Great British Staycation Improving Public Transport and Cycling Access to Popular Tourist Destinations'. 
  • Lucy Prismall – Oxfordshire County Council – 'Scenario Planning – How can Transport planners best plan for the new normal?' 

Jo Ward, the Board Member responsible for organising the annual competition, said, "The paper and presentations were of a very high quality this year and demonstrated the variety of opportunity there is within transport planning to address the challenge we face in scenario planning".
