I’m Howard Pang, an apprentice developer in the Department for Transport Digital Service, and part of the newly formed DfT Lab.
As newly appointed smart working champion for DfT I’m quickly getting used to being asked to define what smart working is.
The Crossrail programme is putting data at the heart of managing an enormous engineering project.
Transport security can be more of a 24/7 job than a 9 to 5 one – which is why smarter working is particularly important in helping us provide a continuity of service.
DfT’s first ever digital speed learning event took place last month as part of our ‘Learning At Work Week’.
A year ago, I joined the Crossing Thresholds programme, which is for women who want to develop their career in a structured and supportive environment.
One of the major challenges for reducing congestion and improving journey information is the sharing and use of road-related data between different organisations.

Transport is so much a part of all of our lives, whether you’re travelling to or from work, visiting family and friends, going on holiday or just being out and about.
