CoE encourages sustainable solutions in energy and transport at 23rd Annual Conference

The Chamber of Engineers recently held its 23rd Annual Engineering Conference – this year covering the topic of Energy and Transport: Challenges and Opportunities.

During his address, Chamber of Engineers President Ing. Norman Zammit first referred to transport, stating that through the Sustainable Development Policy, the Government and private sector should work together to provide Smart Travelling. This is reflected in the need to provide efficient, modern travel that is also socially and environmentally aware.

He explained that the strategy should seek to not only establish good highway engineering and access designs to the island but also to demonstrate state-of-the-art sustainable travel opportunities. This means effective management of access and mobility that provides road users with a choice of access modes, infrastructure that makes access hassle free and resulting environment that is pleasant to live and work in.

This also requires the commitment from Government to ensure that adequate public transport opportunities are available and that innovative technologies are exploited to maximize take-up.Ing. Zammit also recommended the introduction of a surface railway system that would cover the south/central areas of the island where the major industrial and commercial activity takes place. Such an investment would bring in the private sector.
