Transport Minister Norman Baker and Transport for London director Ben Plowden will speak at the capital's first ever Love London, Go Dutch conference, promoting continental-standard infrastructure in the capital.
The conference will also see the results of a one-day workshop where cyclist and pedestrians representatives work with Transport for London and Dutch engineers to solve a pressing infrastructure problem in London.
Organised by the Dutch Embassy in conjunction with the Dutch Cycling Embassy, Love London, Go Dutch conference on Thursday 18 October 2012 will look at ways of removing political and technical obstacles to creating Dutch-standard cycling facilities in Greater London.
LCC chief executive Ashok Sinha will deliver a keynote speech, outlining the success of our Love London, Go Dutch campaign – he said, "We're looking forward to hearing how politicians and civil servants in the Netherlands have solved similar practical and political problems to those we face here."
The free event includes other prestigious speakers, including the Dutch Ambassador to London, the Alderman of Amsterdam and the director of the Dutch Cycling Embassy.
It takes place at one of London's finest conference venues in the heart of Westminster.
The conference is sponsored by Royal HaskoningDHV, a leading provider of real-world cycling solutions, with support from Cyclenation and TfL.
