Smart Transport is to host a free webinar providing expert insight into how the transport and housing industries are working together to make sure they use joined up thinking for future planning developments.
The session, which will be sponsored by transport planners PJA and Heathrow, takes place on May 7 at 11am and is hosted by Lynda Addison OBE, Chartered Institute of Highways and Transportation.
The webinar replaces the seminar session at the Smart Transport Conference on March 17, which was cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Two expert transport planners will offer their thoughts in three 15-minute sessions before taking part in a Q&A panel.
Cullan Riley, PJA director, will present a session on the need to link land development planning to community hubs.
As a recognised expert in sustainable development and transport planning, Riley has provided professional advice on major UK projects, including the redevelopment of the former MG Rover site in Longbridge, Birmingham, as well as overseas schemes in Qatar, Tunisia, UAE and Panama.
The second session will be presented by Tony Caccavone, Heathrow surface access director, who will look at how the airport is adopting solutions between transport and housing.
With responsibility for changing the way passengers and colleagues travel to and from Heathrow, Caccavone has 25 years’ experience in the transport industry delivering major projects across the rail, road and aviation sectors.
He successfully led Heathrow’s response to the Airports Commission and was pivotal in Heathrow’s efforts to secure Government support for airport expansion.
Caccavone holds accountability for all of Heathrow’s surface access responsibilities including delivering mode share targets, Heathrow Express and on airport car parking.
He previously worked with the Nichols Group and advised a variety of clients including Transport for London, Tubelines and the Department for Transport as principal project sponsor for the Major Roads Programme.
