The AITPM Excellence Awards 2017 - 2022
The AITPM Excellence Awards aimed to recognise and promote excellence in policy making, industry practice and practitioners in the transport industry.
This award recognised professional excellence and encourages innovation and practices that challenge the standard way that industry approaches their services. Winners of the award have demonstrated practices which will drive improvements in the industry that ultimately benefit the wider community, with a focus on practice that contributes to:
A sustainable, efficient, safe, multimodal transport system that is accessible by all communities.
This award was an opportunity for AITPM members to gain reward and recognition for innovations in Transport Planning, Traffic Engineering, Transport and Land Use Modelling, Traffic Management, Active Transport, Road Safety and Traffic Data.
‘I was determined to ensure that the new ITS didn’t become a static document to sit idle for the years ahead. It had to be a living document, to identify the strategic and development work required to improve Ryde’s transport system. To do that, we as a project team needed the support of our peers, leaders and the community, and we were successful in obtaining this through regular consultation and an implementation plan with clear project definitions. I am immensely proud of what we were able to achieve as a team with a shared purpose, and delighted and thankful to the AITPM for giving us the honour of the 2022 Excellence Award.’
David Anderson, Project Manager:
‘Ryde’s new Integrated Transport Strategy 2041 is an important step toward changing travel behaviour and securing the mix of transport facilities needed for the future. Winning this year’s prestigious AITPM Excellence Award will certainly help us highlight the benefits of coordinated transport planning.’
‘The City of Ryde is delighted to win this year’s AITPM Excellence Award. Receiving this award will bring more attention to the Strategy, including from government and key stakeholders. Raising the profile of this work will help make ‘visionary’ transport a reality.’
‘We were not expecting to win such a high-profile industry award for our new work. We wanted a comprehensive and action-oriented Strategy that would be a practical resource, both within and outside of Council. As we move toward implementation of the many recommendations, we would thank AITPM for recognising our efforts.’
‘City of Ryde has only recently created a transport planning section within the Transport Department. Winning the 2022 AITPM Excellence Award is quite an achievement. We will be keen to let everyone know, including our many residents. The award will help us bring attention to the many future benefits of coordinated transport planning’
