On the road to nowhere?
Lunchbox Talk - Wed 18th August, 1pm at PLACE

Roads and transport systems shape and form our cities as much as buildings. Roads can link distant places at either end while forming a division on the short distance from one side of the road to the other. We will explore roads and transport policy and initiatives in Belfast and elsewhere with a panel of speakers with broad expertise in various strategic roles. We want to discuss our transport future, coordination, city-making, place-making and integration.
