ICTC conference “Intelligent City Wide Networks”, Geelong


The 2009 International Cities and Town Centres Society’s (ICTC) annual conference provided a platform for recent experiences and new ideas to be shared amongst the built environment. Kobus Mentz presented a paper titled “Intelligent City-Wide Networks”. The paper outlined new techniques to enable all disciplines to meaningfully participate in the creation of inclusive transport networks.  The methods presented demonstrated how to balance tensions commonly evident between the quality of place and through movement, arterial routes and land use interface, passenger transport, general traffic, freight vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists, and economic, cultural, and environmental issues.
