news: Double win for ITP at CIHT Awards

The Chartered Institution of Highways & Transportation's (CIHT) annual awards event recognises excellence and innovation in the transport planning industry. In June 2017 we were honoured to receive both the Sustainable Transport Award and a new 'CIHT Award' for the Connected Business Travel Advice Service project, which we delivered in partnership with Derby City Council.

The project involved our team working closely with Derby City Council officers to undertake widespread engagement with local businesses in order to support them with the process of influencing the travel choices made by their staff.  It was a key component of Derby’s wider Connected programme (funded by the Department for Transport's Local Sustainable Transport Fund), which sought to encourage more people to walk, cycle, car share, use public transport, or work from home.

"The innovation shown by the team behind this entry in making a difference to the challenging problem of modal shift was clearly demonstrated and we congratulate them for providing such a good example of best practice to the industry." Sue Percy, Chief Executive, CIHT

Winning these two prestigious awards boldly underlines the high impact achieved through our tried-and-tested application of ITP's bespoke Engage+ methodology for smarter travel interventions.  They also build on our previous accolades for the Lowestoft Local Links project (CIHT award winner 2013), Choose How You Move (CIHT award winner 2014) and the Robin Hood Pay Card (CIHT commended 2016) - emphasising the way our approach can be replicated and scaled to different contexts.

"We relish working on projects that make a real difference to society and, literally, improve the way the world moves. The outcomes that Emma, Rachel, and Derby City Council colleagues have delivered are testament to their hard work over a sustained period of time, and the growing strength of Derby's sustainable transport offer." Neil Taylor, Project Director, ITP
