This one-day course will highlight common mistakes that can occur during the planning and design of bus interchanges and infrastructure. Exploring issues that may at first appear minor, but if not identified and addressed early can result in challenging and costly remedial work during the construction and post opening phases of the project.
The increasing frequency of flooding and a growing awareness of the effects of climate change are drivers towards a greater recognition of the importance of effective surface water drainage systems. This two day course aims to provide up-to-date information on current practice concerning design, construction and maintenance of highway drainage systems. Legislation with particular reference to the Flood & Water Management Act 2010 together with design and construction standards, appropriate materials and innovative solutions will be covered, focusing on achieving effective and maintainable drainage systems. Due emphasis is given to environmental aspects arising from climate change, the provision of Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SuDS) and mitigation of flood risk. The course is presented by recognised experts in their field, who have extensive experience in the highways industry.
Parking management and provision is a key concern to industry professionals and the general public alike. Balancing the apparent need for parking facilities with the often conflicting demand for kerbside space is a complex issue which typically goes beyondapplying strict technical rationale. There are also social, political and economic aspects to be considered. This course focuses on providing participants with a clear understanding of how to develop evidence based solutions for parking issues whilst avoiding common mistakes.
Through evaluation of industry guidance and case studies along with practical workshop exercises, participants will appreciate what might constitute best practice in sustainable, transparent and safe parking scheme design. They will also examine theunderlying issues with consideration as to how typical challenges might best be met.
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.

Cycling is quickly becoming established as a mainstream mode of transport, especially in our larger cities. All the evidence point to its benefits: quicker journeys in urban areas, improved access to jobs and services, reduced congestion, better health and liveability. Getting more people, of all ages and abilities, onto bikes is a key ingredient in the recipe for delivering better, more competitive and more progressive cities.
This course is a ‘must attend’ for any practitioner who may need to give evidence as an expert witness on behalf of a local authority, the private sector or promoter of a development. Simulating the real life speed and pressure of an Inquiry or Appeal environment, the course provides all the key background knowledge and skills support to help delegates formulate and articulate their arguments both in written and spoken form, and also helping them to build on their existing professional experience to develop the core skills needed to demonstrate strong and persuasive arguments.
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.

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.
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.
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 chainpractices 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.

Traffic Orders are an essential requirement for just about every enforceable restriction that applies to the highway, and will be required for the construction and operation of many transport infrastructure schemes.
This course provides delegates with an understanding of the formal stages involved in processing of permanent, temporary and experimental Traffic Orders together with associated notices that can be used to control the use of the highway.
The course will offer valuable insight into the process for creating these legal documents, where they are best used and the limits of their powers. The format of the course includes group work and case studies covering the format, interpretation and use of the different traffic orders, and is delivered by a leading Traffic Order practitioner.
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. This course provides a comprehensive introduction to the application of the Equalities Act to transportation, highways and urban realm activities and is essential training for any consultant working for public sector clients.

Vehicular traffic and people movement data are essential inputs to any traffic and transportation project ranging from highways infrastructure, public transport links and hubs, large events and venues, freight traffic, private cars, cyclists and pedestrians.
This course provides an introduction to the techniques (both quantitative and qualitative) available as well as looking at emerging innovative methods of data collection. The costs, advantages, disadvantages and limitations of the various survey techniques available to the practitioner are explored. These techniques are illustrated throughout by case studies and group work.
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.
