5th International SaferRoads Conference 2017

1 February 2017

The 5th International SaferRoads Conference will be held in Auckland, New Zealand from May 21st to 24th 2017.

Run every 3 years, this truly international event is designed to increase the opportunity for countries across the globe to participate and host.

Stemming from an idea between New Zealand Transport Agency (previously Transit New Zealand) and WDM from England, the conference began with a focus on skid resistance but has since grown to be a forum to promote the diverse range of activities associated with road and runway surfaces, and the role they play in safety.

In broadening the scope, the aim is to attract a wide range of road owners, practitioners and those associated with maintaining and operating road networks. There also needs to be inclusion of those involved in the development of vehicle tyre and road interface, with the aim of finding better ways to improve the performance, sustainability, safety and reliability of the global road surface network.

However, it’s not only the road surface but also the delineation, vehicles, safe speeds and how they interrelate to play an important role in delivering a Safe System approach.

Please register your interest here to be kept informed on latest information on the programme, activities and key speakers.
