From development planning and traffic management, to behaviour-based movement planning, John has fully embraced transport’s new and widened scope, from past capacity-driven quick fixes, to todays real world ‘big picture’ planning for people and communities.
John's thorough technical grounding working for an inner London authority, and then consultancy has been invaluable in developing forward-looking movement schemes, initiatives, and research such as national Shared Space design guidance.
Working in the Urban Flow way was always John's ambition - wanting to do things better and differently, working fully collaboratively and more creatively with clients and partners.
