Transport Action Ontario (TAO) has long been concerned with construction of new provincial highways, such as Highway 413, so we’re thrilled to be co-sponsoring a Highway Planning Webinar Series that is being facilitated by our friends at Transport Futures!
Taking place online between February 9 and May 4, seven webinars will feature 45 American, Canadian, British and European experts who will compare and contrast the latest highway research, case studies and best practices through presentations and interactive panel discussions. Based on this wealth of information, international delegates representing NGOs, government, business and academia will decide whether it is best to expand, optimize and/or replace limited access highways in the short and long term.
Be sure to register early to take advantage of early bird rates for the first 3-hour webinar which will focus on “Expanding Highways: Opportunities and challenges in a COVID-altered world”. As a TAO/ TAC member or newsletter subscriber, you receive a special 10% discount using code TAOTC5. Other discounts ranging from 15% to 25% are also available if you purchase 3 to 7 webinars in one transaction (no code necessary). Contact Martin Collier at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
We look forward to “virtually” seeing you at Transport Futures during the coming months and getting your feedback on how we can continue advocating for public transport over highways!
