The road transport’s big trade show returns

The National Roads & Traffic Expo 2022 will be held on May 18-19 at the International Convention Centre in Sydney. Here’s a look at what to expect.

In light of recent news from Infrastructure Australia calling for a more productive, innovative and sustainable infrastructure sector to change the way projects are planned and delivered, now is an opportune time for the National Roads & Traffic Expo to take place.

With infrastructure investments at record levels across Australia, demonstrated by the Australian Government’s historic $120 billion infrastructure commitment, the National Roads & Traffic Expo presents one of the biggest opportunities in the country.

The free trade show and seminar sessions unite road agencies, operators, industry leaders and innovators, providing these key organisations a platform to meet, network and engage.

Market leaders and experts from across the country will attend to do business and get up-to-speed with the latest developments in infrastructure, traffic management, smart mobility, parking, safety and active transport.

The show’s main mission is to future-proof infrastructure, link rural and urban areas, ease traffic congestion and improve road safety and efficiency. In turn, this will facilitate business opportunities, create jobs, and enable connected and autonomous vehicles.
