The first annual 'Martin Wachs Distinguished Lecture' in Transportation was held on October 17 where Bent Flyvbjerg, Professor of Planning at Aalborg University, Denmark, and former Wachs Ph.D. student, told a packed auditorium of current and future transportation, urban and regional planners the bad news about megaprojects. ...
The lecture, which was organized by Wachs' current and former students to honor his contributions to education and research in transportation planning, policy and finance, was sponsored by a number of campus organizations including the University of California Transportation Center and Institute of Transportation Studies, where Wachs served as director. Next year, it will be hosted at UCLA, where Wachs was on the faculty before coming to Berkeley.
In his remarks to the audience, Wachs, who retired from academia but works at the RAND Corporation in Santa Monica, said he could imagine no greater tribute than to bring Flyvbjerg to Berkeley to speak at this first annual lecture.
