Contemporary traffic engineers face daily challenges managing congestion, encouraging sustainable travel, dealing with parking issues and balancing the growing demands of stakeholders.
The 2019 Traffic Engineering and Management Workshop will help you meet these challenges by providing foundational knowledge in traffic engineering and widening your understanding of issues in contemporary traffic management. Attending the workshop will provide invaluable experience, learning from and networking with professional colleagues.
The workshop will run across two days with a dinner on the first night.
Each topic will be introduced by a speaker, followed by an activity or case study designed to practically apply the workshop content. Case studies will be designed to have relevance to practitioners from regional Victoria, suburban Melbourne or inner Melbourne councils.
