Directorate for Public Works

The role of the Directorate General for Public Works and Water Management in The Netherlands is shifting from technical administrator to public-orientated network manager. The focus is shifting from maintenance to traffic facilitation. In this regard, the Directorate General for Public Works and Water Management requested DTV Consultants to provide a “Traffic Engineering Course” for the coordinators, inspectors and senior inspectors. The aim of the course is to obtain knowledge and skills in the field of traffic engineering, which will enable them to improve their work performance with a view to future developments. The majority of the course is based on the practical experiences of the participants: their questions, obstacles and developments from their own work situation take centre stage. During the discussion of important topics such as traffic management, traffic safety and traffic investigation, a great deal of attention is focussed on a structured approach to problems. The combination of substantive knowledge and practice-based assignments makes the course practical, informative and captivating.
