Paul Herriots presents about ncat at National Highways' 'Roads for All' event

ncat were pleased to present at the National Highways’ ‘Roads for All’ conference hosted this month at the National Transport Design Centre at Coventry University.

National Highways’ purpose in holding this event was to look at Breakdown and Recovery. The overall goals was ‘making journeys more accessible and inclusive’. As well as National Highways, the British Deaf Association, Disabled Motoring UK, RAC, Green Flag, the Institute of Vehicle Recovery, Motabilitiy, Transport Focus and other disability organisations were in attendance.

Speakers talked about their experiences of breaking down on motorways and the issues they encountered and how they dealt with them. While many had positive experiences to relate, one spoke of spending more than seven hours at roadside after a breakdown, having made multiple phone calls to get recovered. National Highways led problem solving discussions to prevent further experiences like this.

Paul Herriots was invited to share ncat’s journey so far with the ‘Roads for All’ conference. He spoke about how ncat is seeking to design an accessible world for all and outlined the projects we have launched so far.
