The Rees Jeffreys Road Fund is inviting extended abstracts on subjects that develop the strategic thinking about the English Road network in two key areas - User Experience and Governance.
Following publication of its report 'A Major Road Network for England' the Fund is keen to continue the development of thinking about the entire road network (in England) in order that improvements can be achieved in planning and delivery of a better road service for the future.
This is an open invitation to any individual or organisation with an interest in the transport sector to submit an extended abstract on either one or both of these topics. For those abstracts that the Trustees decide to pursue, author/s will be invited to produce a position paper within 3 months. An award of £6,000 would be made, conditional upon the production of a document deemed of acceptable quality and style by the RJRF Trustees.
Abstracts must be submitted by Friday 9 February 2018 to the RJRF Secretary, Brian Murrell - [log in to unmask]
