Garrett Emmerson, Chief Operating Officer of Streets and Traffic, Transport for London
Date/Time: 9th February 2012
London has the busiest urban roads in the country. In spite of an extensive public transport system, over 80% of daily passenger journeys and nearly all freight movements use the city’s road network. Keeping the city moving is a daily challenge for Transport of London, and this in 2012 they faced their greatest challenge when the capital hosted the world’s largest logistical event – the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
