  • 25/10/2018
    8:30 am - 4:15 pm

The Australian Institute of Traffic Planning & Management is an association of people practicing in these fields, and the 2017 Back to Basics Seminar will provide an excellent opportunity for AITPM members, traffic engineers, transport and land use planners and elected representatives to:

  • Increase their knowledge
  • Exchange ideas and research
  • Develop professional networks
  • Enhance their skills in traffic engineering and transport planning and
  • Keep up to date with the latest techniques and guidelines.

At the seminar you will learn about new perspectives on road safety, innovative parking guidance design, traffic signals design, sustainable transport and traffic modelling. There will also be a discussion on a thought-provoking topic significant to traffic and transport practitioners.

A technical tour at the 3M Innovation Centre was hugely successful last year. Specialists from 3M will introduce the seminar attendees to the new technologies this time as well. We encourage you to participate in this year’s technical seminar.

Lunch and tea breaks with snacks will be provided

Registrations are required by Monday 22 October 2018
