He has a Masters in Public Administration (MPA) from Harvard University, and is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Highways and Transportation.

There will be two new theatres at Traffex – Management and Mobility, and Safety and Sustainability – with presentations, panel discussions and workshops focusing on topics such as artificial intelligence, traffic enforcement, data and digital twinning.

The Institute of Highway Engineers will be providing Continuing Professional Development certification and visitors can collect CPD points on the IHE stand or post-event.
