Scotland Regional Photo Competition winner 2017 by John Robertson


Welcome to the CIHT Scotland website. In 2015, CIHT’s 18 UK Branches were restructured to 12 Regions to match the boundaries of the Devolved Nations and the English Regions. On Tuesday 5th May 2015 the Central and Southern Scotland and the North of Scotland Branches merged to become CIHT Scotland.

With over 1200 members located across Scotland, CIHT Scotland exists to support you in your career development, to highlight and share best practice in transport planning and engineering in Scotland and to offer networking opportunities.

CIHT Scotland is keen to support professionals pursuing qualifications such as Chartered Engineer, Incorporated Engineer and Transport Planning Professional status.


The Region Committee organises regular networking opportunities with lectures and seminars covering contemporary issues, projects and policies or standards of relevance or interest to your work in the industry. Attendance at such events is recognised with Continuing Professional Development (CPD) certification, essential for the achievement of the above qualifications.
The Region Social Calendar includes the Annual Dinner and drinks receptions. For a summary of confirmed and planned events, please download a copy of the 2017 / 18 indicative  programme.
Each event will be confirmed on the CIHT website closer to the time. For more information please contact Carolyn Rollo at
The activities, opportunities and resources of the Region depend on your engagement, involvement and attendance. The Committee looks forward to meeting you at one of our forthcoming events.

COLAS Award 2017

On May 17th 2017, the Scotland Regional Qualifying event for the COLAS Awards 2017 took place at the University of Strathclyde. Congratulations to all who took part including Jamie Green who won 2nd prize for his presentation on George Best City Airport in Belfast and to Clare McTigue for her presentation on Bus Policy. Our winner this year, who will represent the Scotland Region at the National COLAS Awards in November, was Adrian Garcia Thorpe. His presentation on the hazards of smartphone use for pedestrians was particulaly eye-opening.

The CIHT COLAS award is held every two years and nominations are made by each CIHT region. Members aged under 35 of any paying grade are invited to participate, which involves giving a ten minute presentation of a topic of their choice – the purpose of the competition is to recognise young professionals and encourage them to develop their presentation and communication skills.


Thank you to everyone who came along to last week’s CIHT / RICS and GIA Networking event, special thanks to the CIHT Scotland sponsor Tracsis.
