Helsinki - Nordic Innovations {Webinar}

Simon Fraser University

Free webinar, but reservations required
. Reserve.

The Finnish capital is one of the least dense cities in Europe but has managed to drop traffic into its core by 20%. 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.
