On Wednesday 10 June 2020, iMOVE is hosting a webinar, Insights from COVID-era traffic data – how can we improve the performance and resilience of our transport networks?

We have seen many changes to our patterns of movement over the last few months, and there is considerable thinking happening about how insights we are gaining can be used to our future benefit.

This webinar is a short, sharp look at some of the data trends both in Australia and overseas and a thought starter discussion about potential initiatives that could improve our networks and protect against future disruptions.
