  New centre targets sustainable transport

Tuesday 10 March 2009
motorwayA specialist centre aimed at revolutionising the UKs transport industry is to be created at Imperial College London, University College London and the University of Leeds, it has been announced. The 7.75m UK Transport Research Centre (UKTRC) will focus on sustainable transport solutions and environmental considerations as a key area of its remit, with short and long term research programmes.

Other issues covered by the UKTRC research will include economic competitiveness, societal impacts and accessibility.

"We are committed to delivering a first class sustainable transport system in this country - but to do this we need a first class evidence base, said Transport Minister Andrew Adonis. "The research coming out of this new centre will be instrumental in ensuring Britain is at the forefront of new sustainable transport developments."
