ADEPT/Arcadis 'Going Dutch' Active Travel webinar

Wednesday 3 February, 10.30am-12pm
 
The pandemic has turned the spotlight onto active travel provision. In July 2020, we published our active travel policy position (here). This set out a number of commitments, including: 

  • Strengthen ties between local authorities, Public Health England and ADPH, for example through knowledge sharing and co-authoring papers
  • Advocate what ‘good’ looks like, using our evidence base and case studies
  • Provide a community of best practice
  • Encourage members to implement new guidance and make significant changes to their road layouts to give more space to cyclists and pedestrians
  • Encourage members to embed the Local Transport Note (LTN) on cycling and walking standards
  • Encourage members to…incentivise travel by more sustainable modes

The webinar will cover:

  1. Macro level view – social, political, and cultural lessons learned from decades of enabling and sustaining a shift to active travel in the Netherlands

  2. Creating behaviour change – based on case studies presenting lessons learned
    1. Innovative approaches to incentivising behaviour change
    2. The use of digital platforms to create and incentivise behaviour change
    3. The importance of effective public/private partnership
  3. Designing cycling infrastructure as part of an integrated transport system – based on cycling and walking case studies with lessons learned, how can ADEPT members embed new LTN design guidance

ADEPT/Proving Services Introduction to the Future Highways Research Group webinar

Friday 5 February, 1pm-2pm

ADEPT and Proving Services entered into partnership in 2018, to offer membership of best practice research clubs and benchmarking services to ADEPT local authority members.

Among the benefits offered to ADEPT members is the opportunity to join the Future Highways Research Group (FHRG).

The FHRG is growing – in age, number of members, and breadth and depth of research. In addition to the 26 LAs engaged in active research, the research partnership between ADEPT and Proving Services enables all ADEPT members to access and utilise the research outputs. The FHRG research programme continues to be driven by the priorities and challenges faced by members and the strategies and technologies being adopted by the sector. Climate change, services funding, smart places, future services contracting, and skills shortages dominate the discussions of sector leaders within the FHRG.

Join us on 5 February to find out more about the Research Group.
