Recently returned from meetings with Beijing transportation officials concerned about a wildly expanding traffic knot in this populous city, Metro’s Deputy CEO Paul Taylor discussed the global implications of traffic management on KCRW’s design and architecture show hosted by design editor Frances Anderton. Listen in online at kcrw.org.
Taylor returned from the Beijing meetings held Aug. 30 – Sept. 1 with a proposed agreement to pool traffic management expertise. The Metro Board of Directors formally approved the Memorandum of Cooperation with the Beijing Municipal Commission of Transport at its October meeting. The agreement does not involve any exchange of funding resources.
