Transport Planning Day - Lessons learned from Amsterdam

Posted: 8 November, 2018

To celebrate Transport Planning Day on 13 November, the Transport Planning Society, in collaboration with DIT, will present an event exploring the delivery of the public realm transport scheme and Metro System in Amsterdam.

Engineering - Transport Planning Day 2018

Earlier this year, Amsterdam delivered two major transport projects – ‘De Entrée’ public realm improvement/traffic removal scheme in the Centraal Station area and the North/South Metro line. Both projects have clear parallels to current transport schemes planned in Dublin. 

This event features three keynote speakers from Amsterdam, who will examine the planning and delivery of both projects. The goal is that best practice and lessons-learned from Amsterdam can be shared with members of the transport planning community in Dublin.

Peter Mooij, Project Manager at Gemeente Amsterdam (Amsterdam City Council)

Pelle de Wit, Commissioning Manager at Gemeente Amsterdam (Amsterdam City Council)

Gerard Shreffrahn, Managing Consultant at AT Osborne

The event is particularly timely as DIT prepares to launch a new MSc in Transport & Mobility. Applications are currently being accepted for the new Masters programme and people can apply online at the following link.
