    HOST: Carlton Reid

    GUEST: Cllr Waseem Zaffar

    TOPICS: 45-minute interview with Birmingham’s city council’s transport lead Waseem Zaffar on a day the council launched its radical and potentially transformative transport plan. The UK’s motorway city is to prioritise people over cars, including adding more protected cycleways. If Britain’s Detroit can do it, any city can do it! This interview was used for a news story of mine which appeared in The Guardian.
