Visit to Delhi and Singapore

Professor Greg Marsden

I’ll be blogging this week about my trip to Delhi and Singapore. In Delhi I’ll be giveing two presentations at a high-level workshop on ‘Transport Policy and Institutional Framework Imperatives for Mega-Cities’ run by Dr Sanjay Gupta from the School of Planning and Architecture in Delhi. Sanjay also visited ITS Leeds as a Commonwealth Scholar this time last year so it will be great to see him again. I expect he’ll be wearing a few less jumpers than he was in Leeds.

Late on Wednesday I fly on to Singapore where I will be presenting to the Land Transport Authority on transport disruption drawing on a £1.2m multi-institution project (www.disruptionproject.net). I will also get a chance to see the latest multi-modal initiatives underway in Singapore and to understand more about their strategic research programme. ITS has always had strong links with Singapore LTA with many alumni in senior positions there and I am really looking forward to seeing what they have gone on to achieve.

More to follow.
