About this event

Neil is a Technical Director of the consultancy firm Cogniva. He has 40 years experience of transport technology and has been instrumental in many Managed Motorway schemes.

The presentation will start by looking for the key drivers for the introduction of Managed Motorways and will then consider how the concept of Managed Motorways has evolved. Neil will explain the control strategy and technology used to-day. Finally, he will discuss where the future is taking us.
