Date and time:Thursday, 27 October 2016, 12.00-13.30A light lunch will be served from 12:00 This discussion will include a Q&A session

In this seminar, Professor David Metz will present research from his new book Travel Fast or Smart? A Manifesto for an Intelligent Transport Policy. The book covers how transport policy has lacked consistency in recent years, with large expensive infrastructure projects currently in fashion, and much wishful thinking about the benefits. It highlights a problem in identifying the economic benefits from such investments – in terms of what these are, and who gains from them. The book proposes that conventional transport economics has reached a dead end, a conclusion that Dr David Metz will discuss further in this session, making the case for a rethink of transport policy based on a deep understanding of human travel behaviour.
