Transport showdown

Civils 2002

Just days to go: If you haven't already registered for Civils, get on and do it, or join the queues at the door!

With debate raging over the government's transport policy, Civils is the place to tackle some of the key issues and meet transport's central players.

On Wednsday 12 June Highways Agency chief executive Tim Matthews and chairman of the British Consultants & Construction Bureau Malcolm Noyce will be squaring up to Transport 2000 executive director Stephen Joseph and Phil Goodwin, professor of transport infrastructure at University College London, to debate whether extra road capacity is the best way to solve the UK's transport congestion problems.

After the government's recent savaging for shortcomings on delivery of its 10 year transport plan, the debate will offer everyone with an interest in the field a chance to sound out expert and industry opinion (see Debate, page 15).

Many of the major players in the transport sector will be exhibiting at Civils: Alongside consultants, contractors and suppliers, clients the Highways Agency and Transport for London are at the show. Both will be setting out their plans for the future as well as achievements to date. If you are working in, or are keen to work in the transportation sector, this is a chance to make contact that shouldn't be missed.
