Transport Planning for Major Sporting Events
Major sporting events attract hundreds of thousands of spectators from across the globe and can last between 12 and 16 days. This increase of visitors can push the existing transport infrastructure of a host city to breaking point, careful considered planning will minimise the impact on the existing infrastructure.
