Megaproject Management in Traffic Engineering



This Megaproject Management in Traffic Engineering training course will present the next step in solving challenges in megaprojects related to traffic and transportation planning and management of mobility within the urban areas as well as between the urban areas. This will emphasize the unprecedented planning and engineering involved in mega projects related to traffic engineering.

Program Objectives:

At the end of this program the participants will be able to:

  • Understand the issues related to the high number of stakeholders in megaprojects.

  • Use adequate techniques of time and money management in megaprojects.

  • Create a risk management adaptive planning approach for the megaprojects.

  • Evaluate complex dynamics of traffic management in a modern environment.

  • Plan and prioritize the traffic engineering activities in megaprojects.

  • Identify possible improvement options while the megaproject is ongoing.

  • Remove the problems of over or under design.

Targeted Audience:

  • Project Managers.
