Join Will Fooks and Ed Zhao as they share the findings of Austroads’ recent research project that explores the many different ways in which place is being measured both locally and internationally, and how transport practitioners can practically and effectively classify, measure and value the place function of our streets. Will Fooks is the National Transport Planning Leader at GTA Consultants. Will is passionate about creating better cities and enjoys working with a range of clients. Recent projects include: public transport planning for Geelong; transport strategies for Moreland, Byron Bay and the Northern Gold Coast; five level crossing removals; and two sub-regional transport frameworks for Melbourne. Of relevance to this project, Will worked for Transport for London in Surface Transport for nearly 10 years during the height of the adoption of Link and Place in London.
