New Zealand Study Tour Award

This award provides for one AITPM member to attend the annual Transportation Group conference from 3-6 March 2019 in Queenstown, New Zealand. The Transportation Group’s annual conference is New Zealand’s premier forum for the traffic engineering, road safety and transportation planning community.

The 2018 IPENZ Transportation Group conference provided delegates the perfect chance to discuss the catalysts for creating and sustaining smarter, stronger and safer transport systems and how they can be, or in some cases are being, applied to New Zealand’s transport network. It also provided the opportunity to showcase ‘world’s best practice’ for transport, be it here, in New Zealand or overseas.

The aims of the Award are as follows:

  • Enhancing the strong two way relationship with Transportation Group
  • Provide an opportunity for information exchange
  • Support members in the acquisition of knowledge
