***IMPORTANT NOTE: DUE TO SPEAKER AVAILABILITY THIS EVENT HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED TO THE FINAL DATE OF THURSDAY 9TH SEPTEMBER 2021***
Join CCF QLD for the annual CCF QLD Gold Coast Dinner.
Keynote speaker Troy Hansen, Senior Project Manager, Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads will present at this event. Road trauma is an issue that continues to challenge us, despite our united efforts and shared vision to reduce the road toll to zero. Usually when we think of staying safe on our roads, we think of the drivers, passengers, pedestrians, bike riders, and motorcyclists we share the roads with every day. Roadworkers are often left out of the equation. It is imperative all roadside workers, from traffic controllers to maintenance crews, be safe. It is our duty as road users, road authorities and employers to protect them. Managing the risks associated with providing the optimal level of safety for employees and contractors working in or near traffic, combined with the need to provide a safe road environment for road users, is a significant issue for road agencies in Australia and New Zealand. TMR is continuing to work with Austroads, state and territory road authorities, local government, industry partners, and representative bodies to embed best practices in temporary traffic management and training for workers across Australia.
Alton Twine, Director Transport & Infrastructure from City of Gold Coast will also be presenting at the event. The presentation will provide an overview of the City’s 10 to 15-year capital works program, with a focus on transport and community facilities. Key civil works projects such as the Isle of Capri and HOTA precinct redevelopment will be highlighted, and project successes and challenges will be discussed. The City has experienced record growth in recent years, which brings with it the need for greater investment into local infrastructure, including community centres and sports fields. The City is facing challenges on multiple fronts not least of which are the impacts of COVID-19 on the material supply chain in the construction sector and the consequences of labour shortages on infrastructure delivery, all while community expectations are increasing. Just three years off the back of hosting a successful Commonwealth Games, the City is set to co-host another international multi-sport event involving athletes from across the globe. Only this time it will be the greatest show on earth. Civil infrastructure such as M1 upgrades, the construction of the Coomera Connector, light and heavy rail extensions and venue upgrades will all be critical in the successful delivery of the 2032 Summer Olympics.
This event is brought to you by Hastings Deering.
