Information:

The World Road Association is able to draw on the vast wealth of international knowledge to support roads authorities across the world. At this one day UK Congress you will hear of UK and international perspectives on the key issues around the safety and security of the road network.
Road safety – while the UK continues to have amongst the safest roads in the world, we must push for greater safety:  particular attention needs to be given to motorcycling, walking and cycling journeys.

The Congress builds upon very successful Congresses in previous years. The aim of WRA UK is to disseminate this best practice widely; consequently we are offering a number of complimentary places to public sector staff  – please scroll down to review full Terms & Conditions.

Attendees will gain:

 

• Insight into the new World Road Association Road Safety Manual
• Lessons from TfL trials on cycle safe infrastructure
• Safety experience from designing and managing Managed Motorways
• Leading expertise on security in the public realm

Speakers:

 

• Roy Brannen, Safety Theme Coordinator World Road Association, Transport Scotland
• Dr Harry Evdorides, University of Birmingham
• Matts Belin, Swedish Transport Administration
• Lilli Matson, Transport for London
• Speaker from Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure
