October 2021
Hertfordshire Essex Rapid Transit (HERT)Book Now
Start Date:12/10/2021 18:00:00
End Date:12/10/2021 19:30:00
Event Code:ER0311
Description:

When: 12 October 2021, 18:00 - 19:30
Where: Zoom Webinar
Speakers:

  • Rupert Thacker - Head of Highways Strategy & Implementation, Hertfordshire County Council
  • Darren Granger - Group Manager, Hertfordshire County Council

Join us to hear from Hertfordshire County Council about how the ambitious Hertfordshire-Essex Rapid Transit (HERT) will change the way we travel in both counties. It's planned that the HERT will form an east-west transport corridor that runs from Hemel Hempstead and West Watford, joining just south of St Alban’s in Hertfordshire, to Harlow in Essex and onwards to Stansted Airport, linking four major north south railway routes and unlocking new journey options for residents across the counties. This new transport spine will connect people to where they live, work and visit in a more environmentally responsible way. It will support local economies to thrive in the future.

As yet, no decision has yet been made on the type of vehicle or the exact route that the HERT will service, but we know that it will be a mass rapid transit system, using the latest technology to carry people in larger numbers than a typical private car or existing bus services. It will provide greater convenience and comfort to our passengers than a traditional bus service.
 
The HERT is a bold new approach that will help to make walking, cycling and mass transit a much more attractive choice for journeys within and between our communities.

A project of this scale will take some years to develop and requires substantial investment from local and central government, together with private sector partners.
 
The Council are in the early stage of developing proposals on the HERT and have a number of steps to go through before it can be built. They will be consulting the public at each stage, with ongoing stakeholder engagement throughout the duration of the scheme. They will engage with local communities, civic groups, businesses and other organisations across the county to ensure the widest possible spread of voices is heard during this process.

For more information on the HERT proposal, please visit www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/HERT.

New Technologies in Data Collection and AnalysisBook Now
Start Date:13/10/2021 09:00:00
End Date:13/10/2021 17:00:00
Event Code:PTRC0721
Description:

Mobile Network data and AI Vision Analytics are two of the newer data sources to the strategic planning and operational aspects of transportation projects.  They have varied benefits over existing traditional data collection sources due to their sample sizes, geographic extent, consistency, and the ability to request data in real-time or over defined time periods.  Transport operators and public sector organisations are using a variety of mobile network and big data sources to improve their operational decision-making and provide a richer evidence-base for their strategic decision-making.


This course provides an introduction into how these, and other new and emerging datasets are collected, analysed, and used in the transportation industry.
  Alongside this, the course will provide a summary of use cases and highlight the benefits and limitations of each data source.

This course has been developed for transport professionals involved in strategic planning, incident management & planning and operational planning wishing to develop their knowledge and proficiency, ranging from private sector and public sector organisations.

COP26 – is the transport industry accelerating fast enough to address the Climate Emergency?Book Now
Start Date:13/10/2021 16:00:00
End Date:13/10/2021 18:00:00
Event Code:ESF0321
Description: 

                                                                               


When: Wednesday 13th October, 16:00 - 18:00
Where: Zoom webinar


COP26 comes at a critical time in the challenge of halting dangerous climate change. The devastation from severe floods and wildfires, coupled with extreme heat with record breaking temperatures in many parts of the world, bring into sharp focus the urgent need to take action. With this as a backdrop there is much that needs to be achieved in the discussions at COP26 to drive real action that creates positive change. As an industry we have a huge role to play and we have brought together a number of fantastic speakers who will give a transport perspective covering the themes being discussed at COP26.

The session will start with a key note speaker, Martin Baxter, Director of Policy and External Affairs and deputy CEO of the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment, following on with experts discussing; Achieving Net Zero, Adapting to protect communities and natural habitats, Mobilising finance to support sustainability and Working together to deliver targets.

We aim to have time to encourage discussion, and we’d like you to consider for debate: what one thing would you like to say to the decision makers at COP26?

Keynote speaker:
Martin Baxter, IEMA. Martin will provide an overview of the aims and objectives of COP26 generally and what the UK aims to get out of it and his hopes for the agreements made.  

Speakers:
Kevin Richardson, Chief Exec, CILT(UK)
Working together to deliver targets 
Kevin will discuss the role of CILT (and professional bodies generally) to promote collaboration – between people, organisations, sectors and governments

Paul Le Blond, Chair, CILT(UK) Aviation Policy Group
Achieving Net Zero
In February 2021, CILT published a Year End report summarizing our activity to date. Our conclusions and views have used extensively in consultation responses, evidence to Parliamentary committees and other published papers. A new set of updates is in preparation for publication in the run up to COP26 and Paul will present some of the key updates.

Kevin McPherson, Asset Management Consultant, TRL
Adapting to protect communities and natural habitats
Kevin will discuss climate risk assessments and climate adaptation in the logistics context, exploring how future scenarios may impact UK roads and what that may mean for logistics companies.

Dr Nishatabbas Rehmatulla, Senior Research Fellow, UCL Energy Institute
Mobilising finance to support sustainability
Nish will talk about Green Finance, and how financiers integrate climate mitigation and climate resilience into their decision making process when funding logistics capital investments

SUS1.1 Social, Economic and Environmental Resilience of the Supply Chain







Mobility hubs: planning for well-connected shared transport, sustainable travel and better places.Book Now
Start Date:26/10/2021 17:45:00
End Date:26/10/2021 19:00:00
Event Code:SR0502
Description:



When: 26 October 2021, 17:45 - 19:00
Where: Zoom Webinar
Speaker: Marian Marsh, ambassador for CoMoUK

Shared transport and mobility hubs have potential for helping us build back better from the pandemic by addressing inequalities, enhancing place-making and working towards net zero targets. CoMoUK, a charity funded by the Scottish Government, promotes and supports the planning of mobility hubs with shared and sustainable travel choices and where possible community facilities. Mobility hubs are an ideal feature for 20-minute neighbourhoods and urban regeneration, helping reduce car dependency and enabling parking space to be put to other use including better places for recreation and relaxation much valued since the start of the pandemic as well as increasing biodiversity.

A mobility hub is being provided by Angus Council at Brechin, while new railway stations in the Scottish Borders could benefit from this approach: the local Community Trust are providing for active travel at Stow, and Reston on the East Coast Main Line will be the railhead for a whole string of places including Duns, Eyemouth, Coldingham and St Abbs
CoMoUK is promoting good design guidance for mobility hubs across Scotland in new developments and retrofitting in existing suitable locations. Marian Marsh will bring us up to date with latest thinking and best practice from near and afar.

January 2022
An Introduction to Highway Design and Construction - OnlineBook Now
Start Date:19/01/2022 09:00:00
End Date:20/01/2022 17:00:00
Event Code:PTRC0710
Description:


Continuing cut-backs and restraint in funding of highway construction and maintenance has led to even greater need for practitioners to gain an appreciation and understanding of cost-effective highway design, specification and implementation.

The principles of highway engineering apply not only to the construction of major new road schemes, but also to smaller improvements, deconstruction and on-going road maintenance. Design approaches are related to DMRB, also to the Manual for Streets. This two-day course will consider the roles and responsibilities of highway authorities and consultants.

Additionally it will guide participants through highway design and construction of new or remodelled roads.

Technical Report Writing - OnlineBook Now
Start Date:31/01/2022 09:00:00
End Date:31/01/2022 17:00:00
Event Code:PTRC0706
Description:

Taking into account the latest Government recommendations regarding social distancing and working from home regarding the COVID-19 outbreak, we have made the decision in conjunction with the trainers that this course will now be delivered via distance learning. The course will still have all the course work, workshops and interactivity as those delivered in the classroom, allowing for the same level of learning while taking into account the recommendations for these special circumstances. There will be a live trainer facilitating this course from 9:00 - 17:00 GMT.

Many professionals lack confidence in their report-writing skills, and feel that their credibility suffers because their written reports are not a fair reflection of their expertise. Anyone involved in technical work will quickly discover the challenges presented when trying to communicate their ideas, information, proposals or recommendations to colleagues and clients. All too often, the impact of many hours of work can hinge on the ability to explain the results effectively to others.
