This one-day conference is about traffic-removal, pedestrianisation and traffic filtering.  Its focus is practical, on the benefits but also on the challenges: the political opposition, the technical problems, and how some authorities are overcoming them.  It will hear from the people leading traffic removal projects today in: London, Leicester, Cambridge, and Taunton.  It will hear from a developer about the potential for new housing in traffic-free areas and it will finish with smaller workshop sessions, to exchange experience of what works, what doesn’t and how these leading cities have overcome barriers and opposition to make it all happen.

25 years ago the A4, which ran through the beautiful Georgian Queen Square in Bristol, was closed to traffic.  The conference venue is on the waterfront next to Queen Square, where Dave Johnson, a councillor involved at the time (now a UWE lecturer), will lead an outdoor session, explaining what happened (see video of the story https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0FQeczanJ0Y&feature=youtu.be).

The cost is just £25 including buffet lunch and refreshments. 

This event is limited to just 45 places and is expected to sell out, so to avoid disappointment book early!
