July 2020
Successful Planning Applications, LondonBOOK NOW
07/07/2020 09:00:00 - 07/07/2020 17:00:00

Following the introduction of the National Planning Policy Framework in March 2012, the government condensed long established planning policy guidance into a Planning Practice Guidance portal, published online in March 2014. Both NPPF and wider changes to the planning system have drastically altered the ground rules for transport planners and engineers working within the field of development management.

This one day course provides an overview of the new development management framework, providing practical advice for those involved in the preparation and review of transport assessments.

Transport Modelling for Non-Modellers - OnlineBOOK NOW
15/07/2020 09:00:00 - 16/07/2020 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.

Cycling for Transport, OnlineBOOK NOW
20/07/2020 09:00:00 - 21/07/2020 09:00:00

 

In recent years, cycling has experienced 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.

 

The increasing concerns over reducing road congestion and carbon emissions, and the desire to promote public health and fitness, are some of the factors why cycling is frequently encouraged as a sustainable mode of transport. This course investigates policy, technical and societal issues underpinning current cycling levels and explores proven methods of increasing cycling participation rates and take-up on the ground.

Public Inquiries and Appeals - OnlineBOOK NOW
28/07/2020 09:00:00 - 28/07/2020 17:00:00


This course will run on two days - 28 July 2020 and 4 August 2020

This course is a ‘must attend’ for any practitioner who may need to give evidence as an expert witness on behalf of a local authority, the private sector or promoter of a development.

Simulating the real life speed and pressure of an Inquiry or Appeal environment, the course provides all the key

background knowledge and skills support to help delegates formulate and articulate their arguments both in written and spoken form, and also helping them to build on their existing professional experience to develop the core skills needed to demonstrate strong and persuasive arguments.

A unique part of this course is that each delegate will receive individual coaching and mentoring support during the course from our expert tutors, and will also receive a personal evaluation sheet and suggested development plan within one week of finishing the course, for them to reflect upon personally and to integrate into their professional development plan. Feedback from our last 2 courses, both delivered to Highways Agency staff, said that this feature of the training programme was extremely helpful and valuable.

Road Safety Audits: Principals and Good Practice - OnlineBOOK NOW
10/09/2020 09:00:00 - 10/09/2020 17:00:00

In 2016 1,792 people died in traffic accidents in Great Britain, a 4% increase from 2015. Although Great Britain is 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 will introduce delegates to the causes of accidents and how they can be addressed by engineering, education and enforcement. It will particularly focus on the use of road safety audits as one way of ensuring that safety is given sufficient consideration in the design process.

Urban Logistics in Transport Planning - OnlineBOOK NOW
11/09/2020 09:00:00 - 11/09/2020 17:00:00

Efficient, safe and sustainable movement of freight within urban areas is essential to ensure towns and cities prosper and local businesses thrive. Freight is the lifeblood of our local economies and needs to be planned for and effectively managed, to balance the needs of industry with those of local communities, other road users and the environment.

Freight is often treated as an add-on to the movement of people, but it can have very significant impact on local amenities, road safety and air quality. And many urban freight management measures exist, from use of Delivery & Servicing Plans (DSPs) to retiming freight activity outside of the normal trading day. But which measures are suitable for which scenarios? And how do policy makers and practitioners select the right mix of solutions for their specific issues, using quality data to make informed decisions?

This course provides the essential background to the nature of freight movement in urban areas using real-world case studies from around the globe.

An Introduction to Highway Design and Construction - OnlineBOOK NOW
15/09/2020 09:00:00 - 16/09/2020 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.
