Fast Forward 2022 - Ian Munro and Dr Lee Beattie

About this event

Fast Forward 2022 continues with an insightful lecture from Ian Munro and Dr Lee Beattie sharing a new concept of "local TOD" (Transit Oriented Development) passenger-transport based urban form as a response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The pandemic has shone a light on the risks associated with "regional TOD" passenger-transport based urban form outcomes. Although often seen as an alternative to private vehicle dependency, these outcomes can still promote long-distance daily commutes. Factors that make passenger transport effective such as capacity (social distancing), affordability (daily user volumes) or desirability (fear of contagion), can start to fail with serious social and economic consequences.

These risks highlight the importance of urban form outcomes that prioritise local economy and movement. Re-focusing regional TOD thinking to emphasise local accessibility would better support sustainable travel decisions, enhance local character and vitality, and provide greater social and economic resilience to system shocks such as the Covid-19 pandemic.
