With COVID-19 upending our lives, what would cities look like in the near future? How does new behaviour such as social distancing affect intercity rail and train networks, road systems, and public transport? Will cities expand or shrink, and what would new urban densities look like?

Prof. Michael Batty will share how QUANT (Quantitative Urban ANalyTics) models land transport networks for an entire nation, at the scale usually used to analyse individual cities. This model predicts the trends on commuting, employment and residential patterns in cities across the United Kingdom, and paints a picture of what could possibly be the new normal for UK cities.
