Transport Planning Day 2019

 

Transport Planning Day 2019

Transport Planning Day 2019 takes place on the 20th November.

Showing how Transport Planning changes lives for the better

Successful Transport Planning improves quality of life. Whether it is a revamped high-street, a new walking bridge or a new bus route. Transport Planning has a big impact.

We set-up Transport Planning Day to highlight best practice in putting people at the heart of transport plans.

The campaign highlights the significant contribution transport planners make to people across the UK. It takes place through a series of events around the UK, including a reception in parliament and Transport Planning Day itself – 20th November – at the Institution of Civil Engineers.

On Transport Planning Day 2019 we will announce the winners of our two awards: The People’s Award and Transport for New Homes Award. 

The People’s Award : communities show professionals what good looks like

The People’s Award invites communities to show professionals how transport improves lives. It highlights best practice in sustainable, people and community focused transport planning.

We will be announcing our People’s Award finalists at our parliamentary reception on 23rd October. This event will be an afternoon tea hosted by Transport Committee Chair, Lilian Greenwood MP who will give a speech to guests.

The event is invitation only, due to limited capacity. However, if you’d like to attend, please email us and we will add you to the waiting list in case a place becomes available.
