England’s Economic Heartland (EEH) has announced the winner of its ‘Vision 2050’ transport competition for students, graduates, apprentices and others new to the sector.
Emily Seabrook, a graduate civil engineer at Skanska, will present her vision at the EEH’s virtual annual conference on 15 September. Spatial design agency 5th Studio helped turn her ideas into an infographic.
The judging panel was chaired by Professor Sadie Morgan OBE, and included Lynda Addison OBE (chair of the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation’s sustainable transport panel); Peter Stonham (editorial director of Local Transport Today); and Lucy Ellis (an apprentice at the East West Rail Alliance).
“The competition encouraged me to consider the tangible and intangible challenges faced to meet a net-zero emissions target,” said Seabrook, who works in infrastructure services at Oxfordshire County Council. “I enjoyed trying to piece together all the interconnected features of a transport system and the varying nature of its users.”
The other finalists were: Ryan Cogan, a graduate transport planner at WSP; Ryan Curtis, a graduate transport planner at Ringway Jacobs; Deborah Keary, a graduate transport planner at WSP; Monty Harr, a solutions engineer at Immense Simulations; and Alex Dawn, a transport modelling consultant at City Science.
