They will join 10,000+ attendees to discuss advanced transport technology developments that are transforming urban development.
Scott Benjamin, Director of Intelligent Transport says, “This year’s line-up of speakers brings a broad range of perspectives on the future of transport solutions, and how we produce meaningful outcomes for our communities through reduction in congestion, better integration of public transport and recognition of the importance of place.
“WSP is exploring some of these important themes at the congress grounded with an understanding of how they impacts on our communities and places. This is a great opportunity for us to learn and share with international partners and teams and focus on both the problem and the solution.”
Richard Boggon, WSP General Manager, Transport noted, “This is a great example of the breadth of our consultancy services, and our drive to be future ready. It’s pleasing to see many of our key partners along with us at the event.”
Right before the opening of the congress, we will host a lunch about system dynamics and how the platform can guide new mobility decisions today. Click here to register your interest to attend.
