The ATRF will cover a broad range of transport topics and will

The event will be held in conjunction with the 25th ARRB Group
(Australian Roads Research Board) biennial conference with a

You will also have the opportunity to view transport infrastructure under development in and around Perth and enjoy some of the many attractions Perth has to offer.
