4958692d632b7d492443928e6e48b9e5-huge-loAnnouncing the £150,000 Rees Jeffreys Road Fund Competition
The Trustees of the Rees Jeffreys Road Fund are celebrating 150 years since the birth of their benefactor William Rees Jeffreys with a major UK-wide Competition. The Trustees are encouraging entries from everyone – from school children to big business.  Grants are being offered  – up to a possible £150,000, plus cash prizes of £5,000 for schools – to encourage new and creative thinking about what road users, and society as a whole, expect from the roads of the future.

The £150,000 question is: What’s your vision of the way in which our roads (motorways, highways or streets) could best work for us all as we square up to the challenges of the next 50 years? 
The Trustees are encouraging entries from everyone – from school children to big business.  

Join the Trustees and guests at a free webinar on 14 September at which the Competition will be officially launched, and the aims and objectives of the Competition explained. Register for free here
Visit the Competition website to find out how you can enter the competition.  Entries open on 14 September at 12.00.

The move to decarbonise our transportation networks requires a considerable change to our existing systems and way of implementation, the adoption of new and possibly disruptive technologies and, importantly, a need for more / new engineers to make the changes a reality. This webinar covered some of those challenges and opportunities and heard from three speakers Setting the Scene, Smart Charging and the Journey towards the Electrification of the Bus Fleet.  You can still watch this OnDemand via the above link.

We’ve all appreciated over the past year how user behaviour has impacted on travel across all modes of transport.  Some see this as an opportunity to “reset” and to introduce new technology and change services to help meet future safety and environmental goals.  Although it’s partly an issue of technology and investment, making these changes also depends strongly on user acceptance and behaviour. read more...
