  • SUMS 1: Transport in Scotland: Now and the next 10 years

    Wednesday, 10 May
    Organised by: Transport Scotland

    Transport Scotland is the national transport agency for Scotland. Our role is both to deliver the transport infrastructure to meet Scotland’s needs and to develop the strategic framework that informs this. The next ten years will be challenging and exciting.  And we want to hear from you about how you think the next ten years should unfold. We want to maximise the opportunities for debate and comment, so we’ll be looking for audience contributions during the session. We will look to frame discussion around four ‘PechaKucha’ style presentations on: strategy, future demands, technology and the environment.

    • Heather Cowan, Head of Transport Strategy and European Funding
