About the Event


New Civil Engineer’s Future of Transport virtual conference took place from 9 to 12 November, delivering a week of virtual talks, panels, case studies and debates into the opportunities ahead and critical projects in the Bridges, Airports, Rail and Roads sectors.

Each day focused on a different sector to give you critical updates from major clients, insight into current transport projects across the UK and discussions on how technology is changing how we design and build future infrastructure.

What you can catch-up on:

  • Hear from major and regional clients across sectors, as their share their investment plans and how Covid-19 has impacted projects  
  • Discover the latest engineering innovations in transport infrastructure and how digital technology is changing the way engineers approach asset design, construction, safety and maintenance
  • Build your knowledge of different sectors by exploring talks and approaches being employed in the bridges, airports, rail and roads sectors
  • Stay ahead of the competition as major projects such as HS2 and Lower Thames Crossing accelerate development and ensure you have the knowledge to exceed client requirements
