Road Authorities’ Technology User Group
Attended by in excess of 100 delegates the “Road Authorities’ Technology User Group” took place at the historic National Railway Museum in York, on 5th March.
Organised by The Transport Technology Forum working with Department for Transport, the user group met to discuss smarter traffic management. Anthony Ferguson (DfT) made the Chairman’s introduction, highlighting progress from the 28th November meeting along with exciting plans for the future.
The interactive programme featured a session on quick fire hot topics including; Emissions, Traffic and Parking Standards, The A2/M2 Connected Vehicle Corridor, and a Milton Keynes case study on City Scale Sensors.
Other key items on the agenda included the DfT Discovery Project, The TTF Survey Results on Barriers to Procurement, Will UTMC Meet Future Local Authority Needs, and How to make the most of SCOOT and MOVA.
The day provided an excellent platform to encourage active conversations and collaborative working between local authorities and those that are able to assist with the adoption of new technologies, to help improve the transport management system.
