Capital to host rural roads conference

Road safety professionals from across the UK will embark on the Capital later this year, for a one-day conference which focuses on reducing collisions and casualties on rural roads. 

The conference, which is being organised by Road Safety GB in partnership with the DfT, is being held at the RAC Clubhouse in Pall Mall, Central London, on 2 July.

The agenda is currently under development, with seven speakers already confirmed on the event website – and discussions ongoing with a further eight potential speakers. 

Topics covered by confirmed speakers include cycling and driver behaviour on rural roads, agricultural vehicles, equestrian safety, and risk assessment and practical engineering road improvement measures.

There are also two international presentations focusing on the challenges posed by rural roads in Australia, and an initiative by the French government to reduce the speed limit from 90km/h to 80km/h on the country’s rural roads.

Discussions are also underway with a number of road safety teams and partnerships, about presenting practical initiatives and interventions they have introduced to reduce collisions and casualties in their local area. 

To express interest in presenting at this conference please contact Nick Rawlings by email in the first instance, providing the title and a brief overview (single para will suffice) of the proposed presentation or topic.
