The intelligent transport industry in Australia continues to demonstrate its innovation and strengths through the nominations submitted to ITS Australia for the prestigious ITS Australia National Awards 2018.
Hosted by ITS Australia, the annual National ITS Awards recognise high-level individual and team achievement and are an opportunity to celebrate innovation and reward excellence.
In their 9th year, the Awards will be hosted by ITS Australia at Sofitel Brisbane on 22 November 2018, where the winners will be announced.
Neil Scales, Director-General, Department of Transport and Main Roads, Queensland who will be the Keynote Speaker for the event said “The ITS Australia National Awards are a valued part of the annual calendar for transport and technology alike.
“Integrated transport networks are an important responsibility to the community and I know there is so much work going on in Queensland alone. I am looking forward to hearing about the best projects and programs Australia has on offer that contributes to ensuring all Australians have appropriate transport choices and fair access to the transport system.”
The Judging Panel, comprising ITS leaders, took time to deliberate over the submissions received across all categories. Gino Dompietro, Chair of the Awards Committee said, “The industry has again impressed us not only by submitting a record number of nominations, but also with the extremely high quality of the nominations for this year’s awards, and after much consideration, we’re pleased to be able to announce the shortlisted finalists.”
