Momentum Transport, the London-based, integrated transport consultancy, will co-sponsor the World Car Free Day London Summit, taking place on Thursday 19 September at 22 Bishopsgate.
The unique summit – ahead of Car Free Day on 22 September – will bring together civic leaders, property developers, financiers, community organisers, architects and transport planners from around the world to debate a vision for the future of traffic-free city centres and more economically, socially, and environmentally productive use of valuable urban land.
Roy McGowan, managing director at Momentum said: “Momentum is a people-first transport consultancy and the work we do with our clients focuses on designing urban spaces and transport solutions which are safe and enjoyable for pedestrians and cyclists; efficient for all users; and which make the best use of the space and infrastructure we have available to us. Decreasing our dependency on cars and vehicles is a big step towards achieving this, whilst also moving us towards London’s ‘Vision Zero’ and ‘Road to Zero’ ambitions which aim to reduce pollution from emissions, and injuries and deaths through collisions with motor vehicles. These environmental and safety improvements will also encourage more active travel by walking, cycling and running which will help to achieve a wider set of city and personal benefits.
“We’re proud to be co-sponsoring the inaugural Car Free Day London Summit and sharing our insight – gained through our experiences of working with clients around the world – on how cities and urban developments can achieve more efficient land use and mobility by considering alternative options to the car.”
