The IHE Middle East Branch would like to invite you to their online technical CPD webinar on Thursday 4th July 2024.


Just because it’s designed to “code”, doesn’t mean a road is safe. This presentation will take us through the why, what, when, who, and how of Road Safety Audits. It will explain the important role that the audits can play in improving the road environment for all uses. The guidelines for these audits are similar across the globe, and so can apply in all countries and for all types of road space. The second half of the talk will show different examples, from the obvious to the obscure. Attendees should come away with an understanding of the benefits of the audits, and what to expect from them.

Presenter – Mr. John Paul Foster

J-P is a Chartered Civil Engineer with over 20 years of involvement in road design and Road Safety Audits in the UK, Australia, and the Middle East. His Road Safety work has won a prestigious Engineering award in Australia. He’s been involved as designer, client, and Auditor on small local schemes to city-wide giga-projects. He’s currently with Parsons delivering a new city in the Jazan region of Saudi Arabia on behalf of the Royal Commission of Jubail and Yanbu.
