Parliament Talks Road Transport

'Parliament Talks Road Transport’ was part of a wider series of free events and promotional activities highlighting Parliament’s role in debating and challenging government policy.

Parliament Talks Road Transport

How is the road system coping with increasing pressure?  What changes are needed to the current infrastructure? And can technology help us make better use of what we have?

Louise Ellman MP, Chair of the House of Commons Transport Committee, spoke at this free event examining what the future holds for England’s road system. 

Members of the public had the opportunity to put their questions and comments to academics and industry experts on:

  • what the future demand for roads will be and what priorities the public and businesses have
  • the role of industry and how demand can be met for an improved infrastructure

When and where

'Parliament Talks Road Pricing' took place at Conference Centre, Coventry University, Priory Street, Coventry, CV1 5FB on Thursday 10 October 2013 and was followed by a networking event.
