Keeping a city moving

This week in Brisbane, three WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff transport specialists will present at the 34th Australian Institute of Traffic Management and Planning (AITPM) Conference.

 



The team will address a variety of topics including latest industry developments across the traffic engineering, transport planning, and transport modelling fields.

WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff Technical Executive, Graeme Steverson noted the appropriateness of convening the national traffic and transport conference in Queensland this year.

‘Significant infrastructure upgrades are underway across the state in preparation for the 2018 Commonwealth Games.’

He continues, ‘Providing safe, reliable routes for commuters is crucial to keeping the city moving. An integrated transport approach will create a functioning venue precinct that is primed and ready for athletes and visitors from around the world’ said Mr Steverson.

The annual conference is an opportunity for industry participants to network with other professionals and learn about the latest capabilities, equipment and technology in the industry.

WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff Senior Transport Modeller, Bill Chen will also be recognised at the conference for his paper: Application of a Hybrid Traffic Model in Infrastructure Assessment. Mr Chen will receive an Excellence Award in the ‘Transport and Land Use Modelling’ category.

Speakers are available for interview outside of their allocated speaking times (see below).
