Around the world, transport agencies are facing major challenges in planning ahead in a context of ever-evolving technology including automated, connected, electric and shared mobility. With every country, state and city experiencing a different context – one size will not fit all.
That’s the topic of a new whitepaper launched by WSP at the ITS World Congress 2017 in Montreal in November 2017.
‘New Mobility Now’ shines the spotlight on the inter-connected issues of transport, technology and mobility. It features insights from international industry experts and learnings drawn from numerous WSP projects.
Australian contributors include Austroads, Connect East, the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure of South Australia, the Department of Transport and Main Roads Queensland, Main Roads Western Australia, National Transport Commission, Royal Automobile Club, Telstra, Transport for New South Wales, Transurban and VicRoads, while New Zealand participants comprised Business and Economic Research and Insurance Australia Group Limited.
Scott Benjamin, WSP’s Technical Director for Intelligent Transport in Australia and New Zealand says, “This whitepaper provides valuable insights for city leaders, place-makers, transport network owners, mobility and technology providers. It outlines the steps that can be taken now: a practical approach for new mobility structured around five key influencing themes.
“Transport makes a significant contribution to economic activity, connecting people and businesses to each other and to key markets. As an industry, we have a great opportunity to shape fair and sustainable mobility solutions in collaboration with our communities and by putting business models at the epicentre.”
