Crossing the Street

March 12 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Half Day conference organised by London Living Streets and the Urban Design Group will  focus on newly developed and evolving techniques to give greater priority to active travellers when crossing streets.

Why Attend?

Designers and Engineers will obtain a better understanding of the needs of different types of people when using a crossing and the limitations to their ability and how to cater for them. They will also learn about the range of best practice and new techniques that can enable a Council to discharge its statutory duties, including the Equality Act Public Sector Equality Duty, as well as the common law duty of care owed by highway authorities to all highway users.

Campaigners will learn about latest innovations and  best practice that should be a feature of the streets where they live.

 

Speakers and topics to include:

Brian Deegan, Urban Movement: New Approaches to Informal Crossings – the experience from Manchester’s Beelines

Mike Grahn (Queen Mary, UoL): The Pedestrian Experience at signalised crossings – Latest Research
