Some of our photographs from the 2019 AITPM National Conference last month in Adelaide. We had a great time, and already have big plans for next year in Brisbane!

There were some fantastic presentations this year, including keynotes from Phil Jones, presenting on "Streets as Places", and Prof. Graham Currie who elaborated on his 2018 paper "Lies, damned lies, AVs, shared mobility, and urban transit futures".

Joel co-authored a paper "Safe Roads for Cyclists: An Investigation of Australian and Dutch Approaches". Through the ITE Worldwide Learning Opportunity Program, with funding from Austraffic, Joel travelled to New Zealand to present the paper at the the Australasian Transport Research Forum.

Engineers have been seen as having a narrow, nerdish approach, but our profession has been embracing a much wider range of inputs and we are adapting to them.  Data needs to be evaluated with a greater understanding, and if done properly it will identify a whole new realm of ideas and directions.

Human Centred Design is about discovering the behaviours, motives and needs of specific communities. Transportation planners and urban designers are beginning to understand that if you want a thriving, livable city, you have to prioritise the well-being of all the people who live there.

The inaugural AITPM and Monash University Traffic Engineering and Management workshop will be held next month on Tuesday 19th and Wednesday 20th of March 2019.
