Next member meeting

Where: Ross House, 247 Flinders Lane, Melbourne (If you have trouble finding the way in on the night, please ring 03 9650 7898.)

When: Thursday 14th November, 6:30pm

Topic: Annual General Meeting

There will be a presentation by Chris Hale from the Engineering faculty of The University of Melbourne on Moving Block Signalling, which if applied to Melbourne’s train system would allow an immediate increase in capacity at a fraction of the cost of the East West road link or the Metro tunnel.

We’ll also be awarding the inaugural Paul Mees award for sustainable transport advocacy.

Note: You must be a current PTUA member to attend these meetings. You can join now or at the meeting. (Please bring correct change if paying by cash.)
