The costly gridlock: how can we keep our cities moving?

31 October, 2016

The UK’s population is expected to grow by almost 10 million over the next 25 years – London’s population could reach 9.8 million by 2025. Since many of our cities already suffer from overcrowding on trains, congestion on roads and worsening air pollution, there is an urgent need to find new ways to adapt to the demographic changes.
How will our transport systems cope? How might we best utilise new technologies to make our journeys more productive and less polluting? Professor Frank Kelly participated in a roundtable discussion to address some of these issues. The event was sponsored by the Guardian, supported by Heathrow.
