Katie Clarke, Graduate Transport Planner in our Bristol office, has been chosen by the Transport Planning Society (TPS) to write a paper for presentation to the TPS Board.  The bursary scheme enables people in an early stage of their career to produce a piece of structured thought on a topic of current relevance to transport planning and provides a great opportunity to develop as a transport planning professional.

This year, applications for abstracts were invited from TPS members on a topic of ‘A Harder Edge for Soft Measures: What Can We Do To Encourage And Accommodate All Transport Users?’.  Katie’s topic involves the perceived effectiveness and acceptance of measures to encourage smarter travel. 

Katie has been allocated a mentor who will assist with the technical content of the paper which is due to be submitted in December, with presentation to the TPS Board in February 2013.
