Safe and Efficient Design for the 21st Century

June 22 - 24, 2015 |  Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada


Held every five years, the Symposium aims to encourage the continuous improvement of highway geometric design.  This event focuses on the latest breakthrough practices relating to highway engineering in their different life phases, including daily operational effects and safe highway designs.

The Symposium consists of informative podium sessions on geometric design issues throughout the world, together with country reports featuring recent developments in road design, policy and practices,  technical software demos, design and research products and technical tours of local highway design and construction practices.

The host city, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada with a total population of 2.5 million people is one of the most beautiful and liveable cities in the world.  With its numerous beaches, towering coastal mountains, extensive coastline, a multicultural population and world class cuisine, Vancouver is a wonderful city to experience both as a tourist and symposium participant.
