Abley presenting at the Australasian Road Safety Conference (28-30 Sep)

With just under 2 weeks to go, our team is looking forward to attending and presenting at the Australasian Road Safety Conference 2022 (ARSC). The conference is being held in Ōtautahi Christchurch at the recently opened Te Pae Convention Centre from 28-30 September, with a key theme of “Changing Today for Tomorrow”.

It is expected that over 600 road safety professionals from around the world will attend the conference, both in person and online. The conference includes a wide variety of road safety-themed workshops and field trips, along with an interesting programme of speakers covering safe road design, safety and sustainability, vehicle technology and much more!

Abley is taking on an active role at the conference as Platinum sponsors, while Paul Durdin is the Co-Chair of the ARSC organising committee and Dr. Shane Turner is the Chair of the Scientific sub-committee.
