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.
The workshop aims to help traffic and transport professionals meet the modern challenges of traffic engineering by providing foundational knowledge and broadening their understanding of issues in contemporary traffic management. Delivered in partnership between Monash University and the AITPM, the workshop is aimed at traffic and transport engineers 1-5 years into their career.
The sessions will be directed by industry leaders and followed by hands-on activities, and case studies to practically apply the workshop content. The workshop will provide invaluable experience, learning from and networking with professional colleagues.
This two-day Traffic Engineering and Management workshop will feature Andrew Wall (Director Integration Services, VicRoads), Nicola Belcher (Director Asset Management, PTV) and Anita Curnow (Executive Director, Access and Operations, VicRoads) as keynote speakers.
Several Austraffic team members will be attending, including Managing Director John Reid, who will present the Day 1 session "Credibility of Traffic Data".
Other presenters include David Nash (Traffinity), Emmanuel Natalizio (Trafficworks), Chris Coath (GTA) and Ross Evans (Yarra Council).
Case studies will be designed to have relevance to practitioners from regional Victoria, suburban Melbourne or inner Melbourne councils.
Attending the workshop provides up to 16 hours toward Engineers Australia Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
