ITS, road safety and the project pipeline were among the key issues raised by Queensland Main Roads, Road Safety and Ports Minister, Mark Bailey, at this month's Brisbane industry lunch, sponsored by Coffey.
Almost 200 industry leaders were on hand to listen to the Minister talk about the importance of harnessing technology not just to improve the efficiency of the network but road safety.
He said Transport and Main Roads was working closely with industry to keep pace with new technologies, and the Government was investing significantly in tech start-ups in Queensland to get ideas off the ground and promote the move towards driverless vehicles.
Mr Bailey also made the presentation to the 2015 National Winner of the ARRB - RA Student Transport Research Prize, Masuda Sultana from Griffith University.
