Putting the Traffic Management Act into practice
Reconciling the competing demands for road space

Date Of Conference: 6/16/2005

Following the success of Landor’s 2003 conference ‘traffic management on local, urban and interurban routes’, and last year’s comprehensive overhaul of the legislation surrounding traffic management, this timely event aims to evaluate the impact of the 2004 Traffic Management Act upon a number of stakeholders.

With these measures gradually being integrated into existing traffic management policy this conference will address some of the key issues which will determine the effectiveness of the new legislation and the impact it has had on congestion in England and Wales. Consideration is given to the charge on local authorities to employ a traffic manager; delegates will also hear the practical experiences of traffic managers in different local authority settings, from a County Council to a London Borough. Discussion focuses on the implications of the Traffic Management Act for utility companies. Will the Act result in decreased road disruption or will utility companies be blamed for street disturbance? The conference discusses ideas for the future of traffic management, including the Department for Transport’s research programmes and an overview of the new technologies which are available. Consideration will be given to innovative new techniques which may help to solve congestion problems.
