Groundbreaking highways event granted CPD accreditation

 

Surveyor magazine’s groundbreaking event this September Highways Management: Smarter roads for the future has been approved for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) accreditation.

The Institute of Highway Engineers has confirmed that the conference on 23-24 September 2015 at The Point, Old Trafford, Manchester, has qualified for 1.5 days worth of CPD.

The event is the first of its kind, bringing together both the national and local sides of the highways sector and is supported by Highways England, the Department for Transport and council directors’ body ADEPT.

Through presentations conducted by Highways England itself, this conference will deliver an uncompromising look into the future of the strategic road network, its ongoing £15bn investment plans and its affect on local authority processes and communities.

Alongside Highways England, the Department for Transport will be presenting on highway funding and improving self assessment, while a selected few local authorities will deliver best-practice case studies on a wide range of topics, from the highways challenge fund to joined up thinking on local and national road network maintenance.

Surveyor editor, Adrian Tatum, said: ‘By gaining CPD accreditation for Highways Management, we are providing a valuable opportunity for our delegates to benefit from coming to the conference. The event will deliver knowledge and understanding in key areas including- how to prepare yourself efficiently and effectively for funding bids, how to get better at asset management, understanding highway maintenance contracts and smart technology for the local and the strategic road network.

‘There will also be a number of panel discussions and debates based around finding the right approach to managing both our local and strategic road networks in the future.'

The event brings together Surveyor with its sister group Brintex Events, which handles the internationally leading Traffex exhibition.

William Butler, managing director of Brintex, said: ‘It’s fantastic to have been accredited as all our highways events are. We provide an excellent opportunity for continuing professional and career development and it’s great that this has been recognised once again.

‘Highways Management provides a cost effective way for local authorities to provide real training for their staff in up to date knowledge and skills, as well as the sharing of best practice. This is particularly important with so much going on in this sector right now.’

For a limited time only, delegate passes are available at the early bird rate of £249 for the public sector and £349 for the private sector.
