Is TCCS future proofed?

TCCS has grown overtime to have capability for the type of things that were needed in the past. The ACT is no exception to this rule. In the post-war era, the fashion was to build roads. Since COVID, this has begun to swing in a different direction. Even Sydney – Australia’s car capital – has come to realised that cycle and pedestrian infrastructure is a priority. TCCS may follow suite. Is the TCCS workforce prepared to take on this role?

TCCS: future proofed?

If you have a lot of FTEs of type A and few of type B, we will see a lot of type A projects and few type B projects. We have a lot of type A FTEs as it is the product of our old thinking. If we need more type B projects in the future, what does that tell us about our workforce?

The free Future of Active Transport in NSW webinar will consider whether there is enough people with the right skills to deliver the State Government’s plans for more cycleways to encourage healthier and more sustainable modes of transport.

The webinar will be moderated by the director of UNSW’s recently established Australian Graduate School of Engineering (AGSE), Stuart Khan, who has been involved in creating a new course in cycleway design.

The seven-week course, including a two-day immersive experience with site visits, will give participants a detailed knowledge of designing separated cycleways.
