Traffex Seeing is believing brings you the ‘inside-out’ of the highways maintenance and traffic management world with both an indoor exhibition and outside demonstration zones.
It is brought to you by a trusted and valued source of industry information for highways, transportation and infrastructure – the Transport Network, which encompasses Highways and Smart Highways magazines, Traffex, Road Expo Scotland and the Cold Comfort conferences among others. Through our websites here and at transport-network.co.uk, highwaysmagazine.co.uk and smarthighways.net, and our social media channels (@transport_net, @highwaysmag, @SmartHighwaysM and @SIBEvent), we are able to bring you the very latest developments THROUGHOUT the year. Our magazines aim to support the industry by sharing best practice, offering an unbiased account of the news (via Highways on Fridays and Transport Network News), showcasing the best it has to offer with the Highways Awards (formerly the Highways Magazine Excellence Awards) and, then, literally bringing everything to life at this live biennial Traffex event where ‘Seeing is Believing’ – with our indoor event, Traffex, taking place each alternate year.
Traffex Seeing is believing provides the perfect showcase with its real road environments outside in all weather conditions. The ‘Inside-out’ philosophy has now been taken even further with the creation of an ‘integrated’ conference, workshops and roundtable discussions. In this way, many of the techniques and skills that you learn about and discuss inside will then later be put into practice outside in a real working environment.
Key highlights for our last event in 2016 included:
- A large indoor exhibition hall – recently refurbished.
- Specialised outdoor ‘zones’ covering maintenance, markings, traffic calming, signage, technology and lighting.
- A two-way street operating alongside the demonstration areas.
- Designated drop-off and collection points.
- A full timetable of outdoor demonstrations.
- A fully marked motorway for showcase displays.
- An apprenticeship/skills zone within the hall.
