Free places available for the CIHT National Conference

Anticipation is building ahead of CIHT’s National Conference – which is less than six weeks away – and a very limited number of free to attend places are on offer to local authority professionals.

The conference, titled ‘Making Local Transport Work’ takes place on Tuesday 10 March at the America Square conference centre in London. Keynote speakers giving the national perspective on local transport include the Transport Minister Baroness Kramer (pictured) and the Local Government Association’s Councillor Peter Box.

Northamptonshire County Council director Tony Ciaburro, Merseytravel’s chief executive David Brown and the LEP Network management board chair Alex Pratt are lined up to discuss how local transport can be made to work better.

Transport for London Commissioner Sir Peter Hendy will give his thoughts on the future for local transport and CIHT Chief Executive Sue Percy will sum up the conclusions from the day. The conference is sponsored by Ringway and endorsed by the Department for Transport.

CIHT’s Director of Technical Affairs Andrew Hugill said: “Local transport is a fundamental part of many members’ working lives and their work is vital to the way the UK operates. This conference will explore how we can make local transport work better and we look forward to a stimulating day.”

In an existing new development delegates to this year’s National Conference will be able to attend two of five interactive breakout sessions titled: ‘Resilient Networks: Improving Places sponsored by Balfour Beatty Living Places’; ‘Harnessing Technology and Innovation sponsored by Transport Systems Catapult'; ‘Driving Economic Growth through improved local transport sponsored by Atkins’; ‘Delivering Effective Integration’ and ‘Making streets and urban areas work for cities’.

These sessions will provide the basis for further outputs to be published after the conference.

With over 75 attendees already signed up, this will be a great opportunity to see how this important service will be delivered in the future.
