The Fundamentals of Travel Planning, LondonBOOK NOW
05/07/2017 09:00:00 - 05/07/2017 17:00:00

Whilst development of travel plans has become second nature across the UK over the past two decades, it is important to get back to basics with how travel plans should be developed and delivered. As professionals, many of us get involved in some aspects of the travel planning process, but understanding a clear and easy process from beginning to end can really help with planning and delivery. This course focuses specifically on the successful elements needed to construct, deliver and monitor travel plans and will be helpful for those involved in operations, logistics, HR, property and planning as well as those employed in more conventional sustainable transport roles. Packed with helpful tips and case-studies this one-day course is a must for anyone wishing to develop and grow their skills in travel planning.

Station Travel Planning, LondonBOOK NOW
06/07/2017 09:00:00 - 06/07/2017 17:00:00

Whilst development of station travel plans has become established practice since the introduction of the ATOC pilots in 2008, the role and purpose of Station Travel Plans (STPs) is ever changing. When STPs were first introduced nearly 10 years ago the focus was concentrated on mode shift away from car use to reach the station, and on detailed data gathering and evaluation. Although these elements are still important, the STP tool has transitioned into a more comprehensive approach, focusing on the overall role of the station in the local community, and how the STP can be use effectively to reach suppressed rail markets.

This course will help delegates get back to basics around how station travel plans can be developed and delivered, whilst looking at some of the innovative approaches being employed across the UK, including a glimpse at some of the international approaches to station travel planning and placemaking. The course will also cover the important area of legacy and how to ensure that partnership working set up through the STP development phase can be converted into long term action and commitment. Participants will also be able to develop their own station travel plan approach and action plan.

The Equality Act for Placemakers and Transport Planners, LondonBOOK NOW
11/07/2017 09:00:00 - 11/07/2017 17:00:00
The introduction of the Equality Act 2010 marked an ambitious attempt by the government to both rationalise and expand equality laws within the UK. With specific duties and obligations placed on public bodies, it has wide ranging implications for transport practitioners. Claims for disability discrimination are on the increase and anyone involved with policies and
projects impacting on the design and operation of the public realm needs to have a working knowledge of the provisions of this act. This course provides a comprehensive introduction to the application of the Equalities Act to transportation, highways and urban realm activities and is essential training for any consultant working for public sector clients.

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.

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.

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.
