Mobile Network Data can provide a valuable data source to transportation projects and provide a wealth of information insights relating to user trips and user behaviour. It has benefits over existing data collection sources due to its sample size, geographic extent and the ability to request data over a defined time period over the last two years. Mobile Network Data has been successfully applied to transport projects, often for input into Origin-Destination matrices, providing a detailed breakdown of origin-destination trips, trip purpose, trip frequency, route and mode.

This course provides an introduction to the mobile technology and how data is processed in order to provide insight to the transportation industry. Alongside this, the course will provide a summary of uses cases and summarise the benefits and limitations of this data source.

Walking is the glue that holds all trips together.

Walking is the nearest activity to perfect exercise and is the cheapest and simplest form of transport. Not only does it keep the walker healthy but it keeps the planet healthy too by cutting down on harmful air pollutants. The benefits of a cleaner environment not only offer health benefits it can often be a catalyst for improving the economy.

Construction Management Plans - BirminghamBOOK NOW
17/04/2019 09:00:00 - 17/04/2019 17:00:00
The Construction Management Plan (CMP) tool has been established as a key tool for managing traffic impact of new development while it is in the build phases. However, with increasing pressure to manage out unnecessary traffic from urban centres and sensitive rural locations, combined with the advocacy of Clear Zones and other environmental restrictions, the creation of SMART CMPs is even more important.

This course looks at the role of construction management and logistics plans to creatively manage down delivery and other freight traffic without compromising the build process and ensuring that the solutions are affordable and efficient. Dovetailing of CMPs with wider supply chain practices and business planning are key aspects which both developers and urban planners needs to address in the shaping and delivery of the CMP. This course will examine some of the best practice already established in this field, and provide a clear structure and process for helping effective CMPs to be assembled, delivered and monitored.

From reducing congestion and solo car use, to making the workforce healthier and happier, promoting good leadership in the community, making business cost savings, improving accessibility to work sites to lowering CO2 emissions… travel plans offer such a wide range of benefits that many local authorities have developed travel planning programmes that cover not only the workplace situation, but also schools, residential areas, zonal areas and even individuals. Whilst they are undoubtedly an effective tool for securing outcomes from the development planning process, are travel plans the best way of engaging the business community?

Cycling for Transport, LondonBOOK NOW
24/04/2019 09:00:00 - 25/04/2019 17:00:00

In recent years, cycling has experience an unprecedented renaissance in the UK. With support from high profile politicians, such as the London Mayor, increased funding allocations and growing recognition of the societal value of take-up, cycling can be expected to maintain its place in the public spotlight. However, it isn't all good news - cycling participation in the UK remains low compared to other European countries, and fears over road safety and a sometimes poor image contribute to significant gender, race and socio-economic variations in participation levels.

Scenario Planning for Transport PlannersBOOK NOW
02/05/2019 09:00:00 - 02/05/2019 17:00:00
It has often been said that transport is in an age of disruptive change. Long-held assumptions about links between the transport and economy have been challenged by new evidence. Barely a day goes by without a new mobility service, start-up, driverless car, hyperloop, or something else futuristic being announced. This poses a significant challenge to policy makers. How can we provide a transport system that is fit for the future?

Framing how you think about the future is the first step to developing robust, evidence-led strategies. Scenario testing has often been used by transport planners for business case development, and predictions have been used to write policy.

This course will focus on how to create future scenarios as a starting point against which to develop your future mobility strategies. It will introduce you to trend analysis, creating a vision, understanding uncertainties, and all the components of a good quality future scenario.

The reduction in personnel within many local authorities has led to internal staff and term consultants having to become familiar with wider and varying areas of activity, often without being provided sufficient training on the legal requirements placed on highway authorities. In addition, current pressures on the management of a highway network plus the delivery of projects can often mean that not all practitioners have a clear understanding of the powers, duties, legal and administrative bases on which these are maintained, managed and promoted.

Mobile Data and Transport Planning, LondonBOOK NOW
16/07/2019 09:00:00 - 16/07/2019 17:00:00

Mobile Network Data can provide a valuable data source to transportation projects and provide a wealth of information insights relating to user trips and user behaviour. It has benefits over existing data collection sources due to its sample size, geographic extent and the ability to request data over a defined time period over the last two years. Mobile Network Data has been successfully applied to transport projects, often for input into Origin-Destination matrices, providing a detailed breakdown of origin-destination trips, trip purpose, trip frequency, route and mode.

This course provides an introduction to the mobile technology and how data is processed in order to provide insight to the transportation industry. Alongside this, the course will provide a summary of uses cases and summarise the benefits and limitations of this data source.

Construction Management Plans - LondonBOOK NOW
19/09/2019 09:00:00 - 19/09/2019 17:00:00
The Construction Management Plan (CMP) tool has been established as a key tool for managing traffic impact of new development while it is in the build phases. However, with increasing pressure to manage out unnecessary traffic from urban centres and sensitive rural locations, combined with the advocacy of Clear Zones and other environmental restrictions, the creation of SMART CMPs is even more important.

This course looks at the role of construction management and logistics plans to creatively manage down delivery and other freight traffic without compromising the build process and ensuring that the solutions are affordable and efficient. Dovetailing of CMPs with wider supply chain practices and business planning are key aspects which both developers and urban planners needs to address in the shaping and delivery of the CMP. This course will examine some of the best practice already established in this field, and provide a clear structure and process for helping effective CMPs to be assembled, delivered and monitored.
