Transport for the North has scooped a prestigious CIHT Award for the second year in a row.
The Sub-national Transport Body’s Future Travel Scenarios work, which offers an innovative approach to understanding and responding to transport uncertainties, picked up the accolade for Transport Planning in the 2021 online awards ceremony yesterday (29 June 2021.)
Tim Wood, Interim Chief Executive at Transport for the North, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to receive the CIHT Award for Transport Planning for the second year in a row. It demonstrates our ongoing commitment to enhancing connectivity across our region and is testament to the hard work and passion across all our teams.
“Our ground-breaking Future Travel Scenarios work helps us better understand what future uncertainty means for our vision for transport in the region, ensuring we can remain agile and have confidence that we are on the path to better transport for our people and businesses.
“Far from a static report; it will allow us to adapt our plans and model the outcomes of a range of scenarios and potential worlds, ensuring strategic transport investment in the North of England is based on ambition and growth.”
The Transport Planning Award category “celebrates the value of transport planning in achieving positive outcomes for the benefit of the public, in creating new communities or on reducing the adverse impact of transport in communities.”
