25 ARRB Conference - Registration now open

by Australian Road Research Board on March 5, 2012

For 50 years ARRB Conferences have promoted discussion of issues relevant to the transport industry, and new research being undertaken on the local and international scene.

ARRB is hosting the 25th ARRB Conference in Perth, 23 – 26 September 2012, immediately prior to the 35th Australasian Transport Research Forum (ATRF), 26 – 28 September at the same location.

The theme of the Conference is Shaping the future: Linking research, policy and outcomes.

The Conference will explore how the outputs of transport research support informed decision-making and policy formulation, leading to community enhancements in areas including efficiency, sustainability, safety and accessibility.

Both the ARRB and the ATRF Conferences will share a joint session day on Wednesday 26 September.

Program highlights

ARRB, in association with our Conference platinum sponsors Main Roads Western Australia, is pleased to announce the three main plenary topics:

• Improve productivity or perish! - This session will explore the need for change to improve productivity, from the perspective of the transport industry and the community, and what actions are needed to meet these challenges.

• Balancing sustainability, road safety, network performance and community expectations – This session will explore how the road transport system can be managed to optimise environmental and road safety outcomes; and network operations and asset management within a Safe Systems context. It will also cover network and policy implications.

• Shaping cities: The role of transport planning in the future – This session, held on the ARRB-ATRF joint day, will highlight the changing role of transport planning in facilitating the needs of the growing city in the 21st century by focussing on recent major projects in Perth.
