Helsinki — Nordic Innovations
The Finnish capital is one of the least dense cities in Europe but has managed to significantly reduce congestion. It boasts a range of exciting transport innovations, including the Crown Bridges—a series of green bridges for walking, cycling and public transport only—and a planned conversion of urban expressways with a 80km/h speed limit into urban boulevards with a 40km/h speed environment.
Finland puts paid to the excuse that density is an absolute prerequisite for great transportation and urban innovations.
Risto Jounila of WSP Parsons Brinkerhoff will tell us about a range of such innovations in Helsinki and other Finnish cities.
