Organisations across the North East are coming together to showcase walking & cycling projects that are improving how we travel around the area.

Nestrans, along with Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire Councils, and NHS Grampian, will be presenting to elected members, local authority officers, and representatives from key partners.

The event, ‘Moving Towards Net Zero’, will detail the ongoing and upcoming active and sustainable travel projects that aim to make the area cleaner, greener, healthier, and safer.

Topics include the new Regional Transport Strategy, Active Travel Action Plans, the Integrated Towns project, the forthcoming Low Emission Zone (LEZ), hydrogen-powered vehicles, as well as details of new walking & cycling infrastructure.

The discussion will also feature a trio of speakers, each with a wealth of wide-ranging practical knowledge and experience. Presenters include Stuart Hay, Director of Living Streets Scotland, Karen McGregor, Director of Sustrans Scotland, and Lee Craigie, Scotland’s Active Nation Commissioner.

Event organisers, Nestrans, are inviting questions from the public to help shape a Q&A session with the three speakers.

Chair of Nestrans, Councillor Sandra Macdonald, said, “The event will highlight the many positive examples of work already delivered, as well as presenting plans that are in place for creative, innovative and transformative projects.”

To submit a question for the speakers or presenting organisations, please send your question to: nestransinfo@nestrans.org.uk. The recorded event will be available to watch on the Nestrans website on Tuesday, 16 March 2021.
