This year is gearing up to be a busy one for Roads Australia. The extensive events program will be launched in late January (http://www.roads.org.au/Events) with a plethora of industry lunches; single table lunches; policy workshops; Board dinners; forums; and special events planned in capital cities across the country.
An exciting line up of guest speakers from both the private and public sectors has been designed to ensure that Roads Australia members stay at the forefront of industry developments and innovation. A spate of state government elections also means an opportunity for RA members and guests to hear firsthand the policies and priorities of respective ministers and government representatives.
This year, for the first time, the International Road Federation (IRF) Geneva and Roads Australia will jointly host a three-day international road transport conference in Sydney from May 4-6, 2015. Coinciding with United Nations Global Road Safety Week, the IRF – RA Regional Conference for Asia and Australasia will be the premier networking and knowledge-sharing event on the region’s transport infrastructure calendar.
Built around the theme of innovating for the future, the 2015 Conference will cast a spotlight on value-for-money and innovative policies, practices and solutions in:
- procurement, funding and financing
- road safety
- asset management
- Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS)
- pavements and materials
A comprehensive program featuring presentations and key note addresses from regional industry experts and world authorities on road transport has been confirmed. Set against the backdrop of Sydney’s magnificent harbour, the 2015 Conference will bring together senior representatives from industry and government from across the Asia-Pacific region and beyond.
