High-level workshop for the Director-Generals and CEOs of national road authorities together with other stakeholders. The session is to look at the Future of Transport, what changes might we expect based on the emerging trends and how these factors that will shape the governance of roads and the role of road authorities.
Of particular interest is the societal expectations of road authorities in terms of performance levels but also how the public expect to be engaged in priority setting, decisions taken and how they will want to be informed. Together with related issues of branding and trust, these are ever more important aspects of a road authority’s’ relationship with its customers in the future.
Regarding the possible future developments of the road system in particular and the transport system in general, the round-table discussions will address topical issues such as; how do the public expect to be involved in decisions about connected and automated driving, internet of things, financing for road etc? More generally what are the challenges of the ‘public appreciation of the public sector’.
This workshop is organised by the Conference of European Directors of Roads (CEDR). Participation is by invitation only. For more information, please contact Steve Phillips, Secretary-General, CEDR at email@example.com
