Transforming road safety and revitalising the economy

28 January 2013, 6.45pm
IEA, 2 Lord North Street, London SW1 (entrance on Great Peter Street)

A Film Screening and Panel Discussion



As part of the economic regeneration of a failing town centre, Poynton has introduced a pioneering traffic scheme. Freed of standard traffic controls, the sociable streetscape stimulates peaceful coexistence among all road-users.

A short film, Poynton Regenerated, shows how the project came to fruition. Already the community is benefiting from less congestion, a transformation in safety and quality of life, and increased commercial activity.



Following the screening, a panel will answer questions about the issues raised in the film and discuss the potential for extending the approach to other parts of the UK.

This event has been organised by Chris Kelly MP and Martin Cassini (Equality Streets) in association with IEA Transport.





 

Speakers:





Councillor Howard Murray, Poynton Town Council and Cheshire East Borough Council

Ben Hamilton-Baillie, Hamilton-Baillie Associates



Martin Cassini, Equality Streets



Richard Wellings (Chair), Head of Transport, IEA
