first issue of 2007 in April.The fact that we could havevery easily made this a 104-page issue speaks volumes forthis sector of the advancedtraffic management industry.We very much hope that youappreciate the diversity of thestories that we chose toinclude. Those articles wecouldn’t use have not gone towaste, though. We areproducing a bespoke roadpricing review in time for ourUK Road Pricing Think Tank inNovember which willoriginally have a limited printrun but then all the pieces willget posted onto our website.Talking of the Think Tan(which as editor I amcontractually obliged to do,but as publishing director Idrew up that contract so thetemptation to say no to myself was surprisingly hard toresist), by the time you readthis it will be almost upon us.It’s really taken and indeedchanged shape since we firstconceived the idea earlier this

year. Take a look at thespeaker programme on pages34-36 and you’ll see foryourself that this really is noordinary event. If you want tosee endless streams of manufacturers, suppliers andconsultants talk about howgreat they and their productsare, then this is not the eventfor you. Theres plenty of others you can attend if youwant that.Of course, our event hassponsors but each of them haswelcomed the chance toinvolve themselves inpolitically- and socially-charged debate.“This style of event has longbeen needed as a way tocommunicate and get thediscussion flowing,” said onerecently paid-up attendee.When one of your event’ssponsors thanks you for givinghim the opportunity to expresshis views and not just advertisehis company’s services, youknow you are on to a goodthing. See you there.
