Bike Futures Hobart – Thursday 9 March, 2017

Bike Futures is Bicycle Network’s annual conference for engineers, planners, designers, health professionals, and decision-makers – in fact, anyone who has an interest in making Tasmania’s urban centres more livable and people-friendly.

Hobart in the midst of building a new transport strategy, congestion has become an issue, and the University of Tasmania’s shift to the CBD will have a profound effect on the economy and the vibrancy of the city – and how we move around.

This year we are again supported by the Tasmanian Department of State Growth and we welcome two new partners – the University of Tasmania and the Australian Institute of Traffic Planning and Management.

Our speakers are all innovators in their fields: Transport consultant Steven Burgess, Victoria's City of Yarra Bicycle Strategy Project Manager, Alistair McDonald, Devonport Engineer Randell Scott, Hobart Transport Engineer, Stuart Baird.
