Bridget Rosewell was a speaker at Highways UK 2016 annual conference on 16/17 November at the NEC in Birmingham, in her capacity as a judge of the Wolfson Economics Prize. The conference attracted 2,219 visitors to listen to the 109 speakers, in the three Industry briefing theatres, and to visit the 90 exhibitors. Highways UK is a major event for the people and organisations involved in the planning, operation and future-proofing of the UK’s road network. You can read a review of the event HERE.
Bridget spoke for the Keynote conversation: better ways to run better roads, along with Isabel Dedring (Global Transport Leader), and Julian Glover (Director for Arup). Bridget is keen to encourage a wide ranging approach to the problem of 21st century roads – from pricing electricity for cars to road access control and road system separation. Economists please note!
