About the event

The Centre for Transport and Society are delighted to welcome Dr Ersilia Verlinghieri and Dr Jamie Furlong from the Active Travel Academy at the University of Westminster to discuss their ongoing in-depth research on Low Traffic Neighbourhoods in London. This is part of our seminar series whose current theme is ‘Mobility and placemaking at the neighbourhood scale’.

They say: 

“Low Traffic Neighbourhoods (LTNs) are transport interventions that aim to create a more pleasant environment for walking, cycling and wheeling by using cameras, planting boxes or bollards to restrict through motor vehicle traffic in residential areas. Previous studies suggest that LTNs can be effective in reducing car use, improving air quality and road safety. However, there are concerns about negative impacts, for example on disabled residents who need to use cars and whose journeys may take longer. We will present the preliminary results of a two and a half year NIHR-funded mixed-methods project to investigate the potential benefits and harms of newLTN schemes in London, to understand the experiences of those living in or near the schemes, and to consider how policy-makers can manage controversy.”


This seminar will be both in-person or online. You are more than welcome to join us at the UWE Bristol Frenchay Campus (room 6X109) or via MS Teams.

Please register your attendance so that we can provide you with more details.
