Transport Australia society New South Wales

The New South Wales branch of the TAs.

About the Transport Australia society (TAs) New South Wales

The two Engineers Australia (EA) Divisions in NSW, Sydney and Newcastle, have joined forces in this EA Technical Society and formed a united NSW Committee for TAs.

Two well attended events were held in 2015, dealing with the planning and implementation of two major road projects, Sydney's WestConnex ( held in the Sydney CBD) and the Hunter Expressway (held in Newcastle as a joint meeting with the Civil and Structural Panel).

The next two events, in the first half of 2016, are still being planned but the subjects will be the Inland Rail proposal (this will be held in Dubbo) and the Transport Requirements for Badgerys Creek Airport (probably held in Parramatta).

This Committee is very keen to have a geographic spread of events as well as a variety of subjects. These events will be advertised on the TAs website well before their scheduled time. They may well become joint events with other EA Technical Societies, such as the Railway Technical Society, whose Chair has already attended one of our NSW TAs Committee meetings to discuss possible areas of mutual interest.

The NSW TAs Committee is meeting once a month, usually on a Thursday evening at 5:30pm in the Sydney CBD, with some members teleconferencing.
