This year CIHT are running an exciting weeklong Young Professional Festival of Learning that will bring together an exciting range of topics and speakers to explore the Future of Transportation.
Understand this future of transport planning iand design n achieving positive outcomes for the benefit of the public, in creating new communities or on reducing the adverse impact of transport on communities. Get ahead of the competition and stay ahead of the game as you discover what is on the horizon for the industry and what can be done to succeed.
Attendees who sign up for this event either as an individual or as part of the weeklong package, will also have access to a selection of additional resources on the day. This will include supplementary webinars, events and exclusive case study material that will further examine the role of transport and the fundamental changes in design and planning that we are experiencing.
An introduction to what the Government’s RIS2 is, and our response in the form of the our corporate publications and key headlines from the Strategic Business Plan and Delivery Plan for 2020-2025.
In this presentation Terry will focus on biodiversity in the highway and the reasons for decline with some of the solutions to help prevent fragmentation, increase genetic diversity and achieve biodiversity net gains.
In particular he will be focussing on:
Relevant CIHT Competences:
Competence 6 – Knowledge of how Highways & Transportation effects the Environment
6d) Knowledge of their influence on project design within the limitations of environmental legislation, or, demonstrate their ability to suggest and adopt new or current solutions designed to protect the environment
6f) Appreciation of what products and services might maintain or enhance the quality of the environment and how to use those resources efficiently, while appreciating other stakeholders’ economic and social contributions / involvement in sustainable development
The Netherlands is one of the key pioneering countries in transport planning and engineering. Therefore, unsurprisingly the Dutch style roundabouts are becoming more desirable due to their popularity and success in reducing cyclist – vehicle collisions in the Netherlands. Recently the UK has implemented the first Dutch Style roundabout in order to enhance cyclist safety. The webinar will explore the benefits and limitations of implementation of Dutch Style roundabouts in the UK.
Speakers: Dagmara Stachelek, Ben Pollard, Emma Scott and Erin Ruddy
Dagmara Stachelek - Dagmara is a Graduate Consultant at AECOM, based in Newcastle upon Tyne. She obtained an MSc in Transport Planning and Engineering in 2018. Dagmara is the current YP Chair for the CIHT North East & Cumbria committee.
Ben Pollard - Ben is a Graduate Transport Planner at Milestone Transport Planning, based in Gateshead. He obtained an MSc in Transport Planning and Intelligent Transport Systems at Newcastle University in 2018. His main area of work includes the preparation of Transport Assessments, Travel Plans, Environmental Statements, Road Safety Audit Briefs and Designers Responses to support planning applications, supported by other tasks including micro-simulation modelling and AutoCAD work.
Emma Scott – Emma is a graduate transport planner working for Jacobs in their Newcastle Upon Tyne office. Emma started her career at Jacobs in 2019 having graduated from Newcastle University with an undergraduate degree in Geography and postgraduate degree in Transport Planning and Engineering. She is an active member of Chartered Institute of Highways and Transportation, having recently presented at the North East and Cumbria CIHT Young Professionals Paper Evening with her paper on autonomous vehicles and the role they play in the everyday lives of young people and their associated mobility patterns. Her main transport interests stem from her Human Geography academic background, especially the ‘hidden’ social and cultural aspects that underpin transportation
Erin Ruddy - Erin is a civil engineering degree apprentice working at Arup Newcastle. Erin has recently obtained her EngTech status with the CIHT back in January 2020 and is currently in her first year of studying civil engineering at Leeds Beckett University. As an active CIHT committee member Erin has took part in a range of different CIHT activities such as judging the AOTY awards 2019, attending the Young Professionals conference three years in a row and regularly attending seminars, social events and regional committee meetings. Erin’s main interests within the industry are highways design and getting involved in STEM programmes
The recent pandemic has caused all of us to examine how we live and work. This event will be chaired by Andrew Hugill, Director of Policy & Technical Affairs, CIHT with contributions from Sally Gibbons, DfT, John Parker, Managing Director, Integrated Transport Planning, Nicola Laird, CIHT Young Professional Network, Andreas Markides (Past President, CIHT & MD Markides Associates, who will examine how we will live our lives and the future cities and infrastructure we will need to support ourselves in the near future.
Attendees will learn what techniques are already being used to investigate the cities of the future and how we as transport professionals must change to provide the supporting infrastructure we will require
Welcome to the 15-minute city. This is whereby all the daily urban necessities are within a 15-minute reach on foot or by bike. Work, home, shops, entertainment, education and healthcare. Some urbanists are pushing for proximity over mobility and this has gained traction during the global pandemic, so is this the potential solution to how cities should operate now and in the future? Where: think global but act local could become a reality. Join this session to understand the thinking behind the ’15 minute City’ vision, and what the Smart City of tomorrow could look like.
Highways England is working to better connect the country and in doing so we were tasked to ensure that, as well as being safe, efficient and affordable, our roads reflect both the people they serve and the places they form part of. Good road design functions well, supports a wide range of users and works for local communities, but additionally responds to climate change, biodiversity and advances in technology. Highways England has developed 10 design principles to improve the quality of the network and set us on the road to good design.
Kenneth Brodie is the Senior Sustainable Development and Design Advisor at Highways England. Since 2017 he has worked with Highways England’s Design Panel to develop design policy and guidance and manage design reviews of sensitive and complex schemes. Prior to this, Kenneth was an urban design consultant with over 15 years’ work in master planning, design guidance and coding, and community engagement, complemented by previous highways experience. He sees sustainably integrating national infrastructure into the local context as a key challenge for the future.
Why to plan for zero carbon transport systems, we first have to get the basics right?
Helping cities to set a roadmap to zero carbon using decarbonisation tools to measure the intersection between planning and transport. And why so many interventions are just distractions from the carbon challenge.
Elliot Reid: Elliot is a transport and spatial planner specialist with particular experience in transport strategy and transport appraisal studies including leading Transport Assessments for a variety of development sites across the UK.
And what are the steps that engineers, designers and planners can take today to address the needs of the future city?
In this fringe session for the CIHT Young Professionals Festival of Learning, Derek Griffiths and Onyeka Okeke from Momentum Transport Consultancy will take a closer look at how a range of initiatives taking place around the world are leading the charge towards addressing the needs of the future city. The session will highlight the technology and strategies which inform our client work; and the ambitions, challenges and constraints of policy and legislation which guide developments. The session will also include case studies of both masterplan and building strategies where good design, engineering and collaboration are demonstrating how effectively space can be reclaimed for the benefit of people.
