One of 30 case studies by the Omega Centre

A global Centre of Excellence in Future Urban Transport sponsored by Volvo Research and Educational Foundations

In January 2006 the Bartlett School of Planning at University College London was awarded a 5-year grant by the Volvo Research and Educational Foundations (VREF) to set up a 'global centre of excellence' in 'future urban transport'. This Centre is one of eight such Centres worldwide, and is at present the only one of its kind in Europe. The Omega Centre for the Study of Mega Projects in Transport and Development (The Omega Centre in short) - became operational on 2nd October 2006 and is directed by Professor Harry T. Dimitriou who leads a team of Research Fellows, Associates and Assistants based in London supported by an international network of experts across four continents.

The current focus of our research is to identify 'what constitutes a successful Mega Urban Transport Project?'. A simple question perhaps, but with many diverse and complex answers.
