Essential Legislation for Transport Planners - OnlineBOOK NOW
17/05/2022 09:00:00 - 17/05/2022 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.


This one-day course provides an essential insight into the distinction between law and guidance and the risks that can arise from any departure. It will cover the main duties, statutory and discretionary powers and obligations placed on highway and traffic practitioners by UK highway and traffic legislation.

New Technologies in Data Collection and AnalysisBOOK NOW
19/05/2022 09:00:00 - 19/05/2022 17:00:00

Mobile Network data and AI Vision Analytics are two of the newer data sources to the strategic planning and operational aspects of transportation projects.  They have varied benefits over existing traditional data collection sources due to their sample sizes, geographic extent, consistency, and the ability to request data in real-time or over defined time periods.  Transport operators and public sector organisations are using a variety of mobile network and big data sources to improve their operational decision-making and provide a richer evidence-base for their strategic decision-making.


This course provides an introduction into how these, and other new and emerging datasets are collected, analysed, and used in the transportation industry.  Alongside this, the course will provide a summary of use cases and highlight the benefits and limitations of each data source.

This course has been developed for transport professionals involved in strategic planning, incident management & planning and operational planning wishing to develop their knowledge and proficiency, ranging from private sector and public sector organisations.

We will help you to understand how to plan 
networks and interventions to suit different circumstances. We will show the best available methods for designing for cyclists at junctions, main roads and quieter streets.

Construction Management Plans - OnlineBOOK NOW
26/05/2022 09:00:00 - 26/05/2022 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.
