August 2017
Transport Modelling for Non-Modellers, GlasgowBOOK NOW
30/08/2017 09:00:00 - 31/08/2017 17:00:00

The modelling of junctions, road networks and public transport systems provides fundamental information to support decisions taken on future land uses, investment in the transport system and other policy interventions. With modelling tools ranging from “simple” equations through to highly complex mathematical, algorithm based systems, many people responsible for commissioning modelling activities find modelling a daunting area of responsibility. This course provides an introduction to the modelling tools commonly used, providing delegates with an understanding of the applicability of different models to various situations, and equips practitioners with simple techniques for checking model outputs.

September 2017
Construction Management Plans, BirminghamBOOK NOW
05/09/2017 09:00:00 - 05/09/2017 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.

Advanced Road Safety Audit and Engineering, LondonBOOK NOW
06/09/2017 09:00:00 - 07/09/2017 17:00:00

In 2014 1,775 people died in traffic accidents in Great Britain, a 4% increase from 2013. Although Great Britain remains one of the best performing countries in the world when it comes to road safety, there are still improvements that can be made to reduce the number of deaths and injuries occurring on our roads. This course is split over two days, on the first day delegates will examine ‘human factors’ associated with road safety and will particularly focus on the implementation of the ‘safe systems’ approach to casualty reduction and its relevance in road safety audit and applied engineering practice, as one way of ensuring that safety is given sufficient consideration in the design process. Day 2 covers international road safety engineering and audit process, with a focus on the World Health Organisation (WHO) International Decade of Action and it compares and contrasts typical UK practices and conditions with those likely to be encountered internationally.

Cycling for TransportBOOK NOW
06/09/2017 09:00:00 - 07/09/2017 17:00:00

In recent years, cycling has experience an unprecedented renaissance in the UK. With support from high profile politicians, such as the London Mayor, increased funding allocations and growing recognition of the societal value of take-up, cycling can be expected to maintain its place in the public spotlight. However, it isn't all good news - cycling participation in the UK remains low compared to other European countries, and fears over road safety and a sometimes poor image contribute to significant gender, race and socio-economic variations in participation levels.

Parking management and provision is a key concern to industry professionals and the general public alike. Balancing the apparent need for parking facilities with the often conflicting demand for kerbside space is a complex issue which typically goes beyond
applying strict technical rationale. There are also social, political and economic aspects to be considered. This course focuses on providing participants with a clear understanding of how to develop evidence based solutions for parking issues whilst avoiding common mistakes.

Through evaluation of industry guidance and case studies along with practical workshop exercises, participants will appreciate what might constitute best practice in sustainable, transparent and safe parking scheme design. They will also examine the
underlying issues with consideration as to how typical challenges might best be met.

Mobile Data and Transport Planning, LondonBOOK NOW
12/09/2017 09:00:00 - 12/09/2017 17:00:00

Mobile Network Data can provide a valuable data source to transportation projects and provide a wealth of information insights relating to user trips and user behaviour. It has benefits over existing data collection sources due to its sample size, geographic extent and the ability to request data over a defined time period over the last two years. Mobile Network Data has been successfully applied to transport projects, often for input into Origin-Destination matrices, providing a detailed breakdown of origin-destination trips, trip purpose, trip frequency, route and mode.

This course provides an introduction to the mobile technology and how data is processed in order to provide insight to the transportation industry. Alongside this, the course will provide a summary of uses cases and summarise the benefits and limitations of this data source.

An Introduction to Highway Design and Construction, LondonBOOK NOW
12/09/2017 09:00:00 - 13/09/2017 17:00:00

Continuing cut-backs and restraint in funding of highway construction and maintenance has led to even greater need for practitioners to gain an appreciation and understanding of cost-effective highway design, specification and implementation. The principles of highway engineering apply not only to the construction of major new road schemes, but also to smaller improvements, deconstruction and on going road maintenance. Design approaches are related to DMRB, also to the Manual for Streets. This two-day course will consider the roles and responsibilities of highway authorities and consultants. Additionally it will guide participants through highway design and construction of new or remodelled roads.
