CILT members are invited to join High Volume Transport (HVT) for their third Research Knowledge Exchange, where they will explore the evidence base for how transport in low- and middle-income countries responded to the challenges of COVID-19.

What can we learn from how transport systems responded to the last 18 months? How do we build more resilient transport for the future? How do we keep people and economies moving whatever the challenges?
