Essential Legislation for Transport PracitionersBOOK NOW
05/06/2018 09:00:00 - 05/06/2018 17:00:00

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.

Overcoming the Challenges of Poor Air Quality, BirminghamBOOK NOW
07/06/2018 09:00:00 - 07/06/2018 17:00:00

Nearly 40 million Britons live in areas with illegal air pollution levels resulting in 40,000 premature deaths a year. The Government's latest plan for tackling air pollution and roadside NO2, published in July 2017, announced over £2.7 billion of investment in air quality (AQ) and cleaner transport. In the Plan, affected local authorities must produce an initial air quality management plan by the end of March 2018, and final places by December 2018 - A challenging ask! To assist local authorities in meeting these timescales, the Government will ensure they can immediately draw on the Implementation Fund.

Developing Successful School Travel Plans - What Makes a Good Secondary School Travel Plan? LondonBOOK NOW
14/06/2018 09:00:00 - 14/06/2018 17:00:00

Whilst development of school travel plans has become ‘second nature’ across the UK over the past two decades, with future planning growth and rising populations, this tool is still highly relevant. As we come out of the latest round of LSTF projects, against a background of rising car ownership and use, the ‘school run’ still remains a key area to tackle - particularly in the secondary school sector. This course focuses specifically on the successful ingredients needed to construct, deliver and monitor travel plans for establishments catering for 11-16/18 year olds. It highlights the role of the planning process, particularly given the need for new schools and academies to cater for the demands of expanding urban and rural communities. Packed with helpful tips and case studies, this one-day course is a must for anyone wishing to refresh or enhance their knowledge of school travel planning techniques,and looking for new and innovative ways to secure commitment and engagement.

Effective Construction Management Planning, LondonBOOK NOW
15/06/2018 09:00:00 - 15/06/2018 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.

Transport Modelling for Non-Modellers, DublinBOOK NOW
20/06/2018 09:00:00 - 21/06/2018 09:00:00


The modelling of junctions, road networks and public transport systems provides fundamental information to support decisions taken on future land uses, investment in the transport system and other policy interventions. With modelling tools ranging from "simple" equations through to highly complex mathematical, algorithm based systems, many people responsible for commissioning modelling activities find modelling a daunting area of responsibility. This course provides an introduction to the modelling tools commonly used, providing delegates with an understanding of the applicability of different models to various situations, and equips practitioners with simple techniques for checking model outputs.

Mobile Data and Transport Planning, LondonBOOK NOW
12/07/2018 09:00:00 - 12/07/2018 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.

19/07/2018 09:00:00 - 19/07/2018 17:00:00

The introduction of the Equality Act 2010 marked an ambitious attempt by the government to both rationalise and expand equality laws within the UK. With specific duties and obligations placed on public bodies, it has wide ranging implications for transport practitioners. Claims for disability discrimination are on the increase and anyone involved with policies and projects impacting on the design and operation of the public realm needs to have a working knowledge of the provisions of this act.

An Introduction to Highway Design and Construction, LondonBOOK NOW
18/09/2018 09:00:00 - 19/09/2018 17:00:00

Continuing cut-backs and restraint in funding of highway construction and maintenance has led to even greater need for practitioners to gain an appreciation and understanding of cost-effective highway design, specification and implementation. The principles of highway engineering apply not only to the construction of major new road schemes, but also to smaller improvements, deconstruction and on going road maintenance. Design approaches are related to DMRB, also to the Manual for Streets. This two-day course will consider the roles and responsibilities of highway authorities and consultants. Additionally it will guide participants through highway design and construction of new or remodelled roads.
