ITS leads on the road to Net Zero, a minister impressed and a merger not a takeover – all on Highways Voices from Hamburg

WSP’s new “greenprint” for transport to reach Net Zero leads the conversation on Wednesday at the ITS World Congress in the latest Highways Voices sponsored by SWARCO and GEWI.

Associate Tom Grahamslaw discusses the new white paper which explains how Intelligent Transport Systems can enable the decarbonisation of road traffic saying, “It’s about adapting what we currently have. It’s making more efficient use of our existing networks, but really putting ourselves in the shoes of the people so that we can create solutions that people will adopt, that will people will embrace. And that will drive the most successful outcomes.”

UK Transport Minister Trudy Harrison (pictured) discusses environmental benefits of technology too as she talks about how seeing solutions for herself, “is so important, particularly at the early stages of my new role in the Department for Transport.”

Elsewhere sponsor SWARCO’s Executive Board member Michael Schuch explains the recent acquisition of Dynniq Mobility is considered a merger and “that is how we also approach now this integration of Dynniq mobility part into the SWARCO family,” while Cubic’s Krishna Desai talks about a paper she is presenting on Wednesday about the importance of educating the public by pointing out, “I actually give an analogy about my brother, who thinks a smart motorway is an extra lane on the motorway that they’re building to charge electric vehicles.”

You’ll also hear Prof Eric Sampson’s guide to Wednesday and the latest news from Highways News HQ with Adrian Tatum. Listen here.
