    Title: Transport and the Olympic Legacy - Driving Innovation

    Date: Tuesday, 11th September 2012

    Time: 18:30 - 20:00 BST

    Location: Cruciform Lecture Theatre 1, Cruciform Building, Gower Street, London, WC1E 6BT.

    With the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics now over, what can we learn from how transport systems coped with the unprecedented demand? This event looks at some of the innovations that allowed people in London to try using the road and rail networks more efficiently, and will ask what can be built upon to improve ways in which London's transport is delivered in the future.
