Led by CIHT South West. The South West Showcase Series is a region-wide look at projects in the South West led by key industry leaders across the region.
Featured local authorities include Cornwall Council, Devon County Council, Somerset County Council, Torbay Council and Wiltshire Council with more to be announced.
The South West region is, geographically, the largest of England’s nine official regions. It’s mix of geographical features, contrasting urban and rural settlements, susceptibility to the impacts of climate change and constrained network all provide challenges to transport infrastructure. However, in challenge lies opportunity.
This webinar series, organised by the CIHT South West committee, is designed to provide insights into recent transport projects and the challenges that they address from across the diverse region. Across the three webinars there will be presentations from several Local Authorities, covering different topic areas. Each session provides an opportunity for Q&A. Offered at the price of a single event, this really is three CPD webinars for the price of one.
