Sustainability, placemaking and connectivity will be the three key themes for the Australian Institute of Traffic Planning and Management national conference in Melbourne on 13 to 15 September.
Within an overall theme of Pathways to a Connected Modern Australia, this year’s annual event will explore solutions for more sustainable and efficient transportation, how enhanced transport services can enliven Australian cities, suburbs and regional centres, and how connectivity can be improved throughout the nation.
Three days of presentations will this year be divided between the Melbourne Cricket Ground and the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, and will feature speakers including the University of Amsterdam’s chair on urban mobility futures, Professor Marco te Brömmelstroet, Infrastructure Victoria CEO Jonathan Spear, Transport for NSW chief transport planner Simon Hunter, and Victoria’s Minister for Roads and Road Safety, Melissa Horne.
Day two will also include a gala dinner and AITPM awards presentation at Zinc@FedSquare.
Day one will incorporate two workshops – a full-day session on transport modelling and a half-day workshop looking at Connected Intelligent Transport Systems.
Micromobility Report will be attending the AITPM conference and including a summary of the event in a future newsletter.
