Event description

Description

BRT UK is delighted to invite you to attend the first Technical Visit of 2018.

This event is free of charge although only a limited number of spaces are available.

Our friends at Nottingham City Council have offered to host this event.

This technical visit will showcase two demonstration ultra low emission bus corridors with wide scale enforced bus priority, park and ride sites, fully electric and biogas buses and charging depots, real time information and ‘Oystercard’ smart ticketing. There are also integrated cycle and pedestrian facilities, improved waiting facilities and traffic light priority for late running buses. Both have been completed within a four year period without requiring highly expensive and time consuming major scheme approval.

Lunch and refreshments to be provided.

If you have any questions please contact tom.hacker@wsp.com
