Pavement Management systems have been designed to provide information on the functional and structural condition of roads so that road owners can offer a smooth and safe ride to road users at the lowest possible cost. They also provide reliable information to decision makers about the condition of the road network for maintenance and rehabilitation planning and funding. However, the problem with PMS systems has traditionally been that they have supported reactive maintenance whereby the road is repaired by mainly standard methods after a specified amount of visible damage has occurred on the pavement.
Correctly forecasting future traffic demand, and assessing the impacts that construction & rehabilitation projects may have on existing traffic volumes, is a cornerstone of sound financial modelling for road projects, especially those developed using Public Private Partnerships (PPPs).
This on-line training workshop will cover the principles, concepts, components, techniques and benefits of managing road infrastructure assets. The contents will be based on international practitioner handbooks as well as the hands-on experience of the course instructors. The workshop will teach the most relevant best practices as they relate to strategic asset management, tactical & technical asset management planning and operational asset management & service delivery.
This online course is designed to meet the educational needs of government officials in charge of transportation procurements and contracts.
This online course will provide a basic overview of public-private partnerships and project finance covering both academic theory as well as a technical review of some of the basic techniques used for the delivery and management of transportation infrastructure projects.
This on-line training course is designed to provide a comprehensive knowledge of the basic concepts and recent advances related to pavement design, analysis and construction. Participants will be guided through various interactive course modules to develop skills and knowledge to employ standard guidelines and specifications related to both flexible and rigid pavements.
TheIRF Asia-Pacific Virtual Conference will focus on the future of road infrastructure, sustainability, Safety and how road agencies can take advantage of new advances in processes and technologies to deliver on their mandates.
This course will provide a basic overview of the environmental and social impacts (ESI) associated with road project delivery with emphasis on developing individual skills and organizational methodologies needed to deliver effective ESI strategies and plans.
Road safety audit and inspections serve the common purpose of identifying risk factors related to road design or traffic control that may lead to crashes, or make crashes more severe. In many cases, they also assist network highway operators and city traffic departments in identifying engineering weaknesses and hazardous locations, even in the absence of robust traffic injury data.
The International Road Federation (IRF) On-line Safe Roads by Design™: Making Roads Safe for all Users certified training program is one of the most comprehensive on-line road safety training programs in the world. Experts in the field will present best practices and state of the art technologies in Roadside Safety, Work Zone Safety, Vulnerable User Safety, Traffic Management and Road Safety Audits over a three week period.
Traffic Management Centers (TMCs) have been described as the heart of an agency’s mobility management system. In practice, TMCs serve as the technical and institutional hubs that facilitate interagency coordination and integrate a wide range of traffic a wide range of traffic management strategies to achieve the collective goal of providing safe, efficient and sustainable transportation infrastructure.
The Foundation level course and certification is step 1 of the APMG PPP Certification Program which aims to foster a common minimum level of knowledge and understanding amongst individuals working on PPPs or those interested in learning about PPPs, regardless of discipline or sector. APMG awards the CP3P credential to individuals who successfully pass the three examinations: (1) Foundation and Overview Stage, (2) Preparation Stage, and (3) Execution Stage. APMG’s PPP Certification is recognized by leading development agencies, such as the World Bank, the Asian Development Bank, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, and others.
This on-line training course will focus on how to manage and implement Performance-based contracts to help road agencies meet their desired outcomes . Agencies that are seeking more effective mechanisms for privatizing maintenance programs will profit by sending key staff to learn from the experience of counterparts in the public and private sectors and from international financing institutions
El final de la primera Década en Acción para Seguridad Vial 2011 – 2020 marcó el inicio de formas internacionales de colaboración para la prevenir la continua y creciente epidemia de los accidentes en carreteras, responsable de 1,350,000 muertes por año.
This course will guide participants through the main principles, concepts, elements, technologies and full range of benefits arising from the successful deployment of MaaS.
The main goal of this online training is to introduce the fundamentals of practical data science relevant to transportation and roadway experts. Various aspects, such as the use of different data processing tools, data visualization, data mining and artificial intelligence will be discussed through online hands-on tutorials.
The 18th IRF World Meeting aspires to be a global summit & technology showcase that is both uniquely relevant to a wide cross-section of road mobility stakeholders, and focused on delivering solutions to the world’s pressing mobility questions.
