Leveraging road and transport asset capacity to maximize performance and combat urban congestion

Conference: 29 – 30 October 2019 
Pre-Conference Workshop: 28 October 2019 

Don’t miss the new Busting Urban Congestion conference coming to Sydney from 28-30 October 2019.
Australia’s recently created Urban Congestion Fund aims to alleviate the cost of congestion with $4 billion being invested by the federal government over the next 10 years.  The Busting Urban Congestion conference complements this initiative by providing a platform to identify key opportunities for increased efficiencies in traffic management and integration of intelligent transport systems.

Did you know? Traffic congestion in Australia currently costs the economy more than $16 billion per year?
Growing freight volumes and additional commuters navigating Australia’s road and transport networks are challenging traffic reliability and efficiency and increasing travel times, bottlenecks and vehicle operating costs.  
Join us this October to overcome traffic management issues caused by bottlenecks, overcrowding, poor signal timing, traffic incidents, construction zones, and inclement weather and identify solutions to combat urban congestion and improve transport mobility.
