After HS2: What transport system does Yorkshire & Humber need?

Monday, December 4, 2023 - 19:00 to 20:30
Zoom (online)

Transport is the biggest source of carbon emissions in our region. It also plays a major role in air pollution and has other impacts on our wellbeing. To create a transport system that works for everyone while meeting net zero targets is a big challenge - but the prize could be healthier, less congested places and a more productive and inclusive economy.

With the cancellation of HS2, the government says there's £19.8 billion available to re-invest in northern transport. Where should it be directed? What would make most difference in helping you to travel in a greener way?

Our panel will discuss the road ahead and present their take on the choices for the region - and we'll ask your views on how that money should be spent.

Speakers include:

  • Peter Cole, Head of Decarbonisation, Transport for the North
  • Julia Thrift, Director - Healthier Place-making, Town and Country Planning Association (TCPA)
  • Dr Malcolm Morgan, Senior Research Fellow for Transport and Spatial Analysis, University of Leeds
  • Kat Armstrong, Engagement & Impact Officer (Net Zero), Yorkshire & Humber Climate Commission

This interactive session will include opportunities for you to give your views on transport, which will be fed into Yorkshire & Humber Climate Commission’s consultation on transport and our future work.
