Colllaborate, Create Communicate

In this workshop students are introduced to Smeaton, a fictional city chosen as the site for a new high-speed rail terminus. A river crossing is being proposed to better incorporate the station into the city. Students will research crossing types, role play local people’s (stakeholders’) views and then present their findings to the rest of the class.
