Cathy has a background in management with a keen attention to detail and a ‘what if?’ approach to problem solving. She has experience in a wide range of projects including traffic impact assessments and  transport management plans, rezoning assessments, access and parking studies, workplace travel plans and strategic studies. A very solution orientated person, Cathy brings an ‘out of the square’ thinking to the challenges projects can offer.

When asked what she likes most about traffic and transport advice she said “I like the challenge. The assessment of traffic impacts as outlined by the various authority guides is very prescriptive and logical and that appeals to the accountant in me; however, the need to overlay that with real life: the people, the location and the economics appeals to me as a problem solver. There is nothing more exciting than overcoming the traffic and transport challenges of a site, providing an innovative solution to our client, and ticking the boxes for the road authorities - all in a timely and cost effective way.”

Cathy is a qualified road safety auditor and is particularly interested in travel planning; including sustainable and workplace travel plans and how they can provide a solution for clients with parking or traffic constraints. She has undertaken courses in travel planning and the development of workplace travel plans as well as courses in Place and Movement through the University of Technology, Sydney.

“More and more we are seeing councils require a Workplace Travel Plan, (also called a Green Travel Plan, Sustainable Travel Plan or Smart Travel Plan) as part of their consent requirements. The forward thinking clients are realising that it is often better to undertake this as part of their initial works rather than leaving it to be a requirement as a condition of consent. Where there is a problem with potential parking supply or where the local road network is severely congested, the undertaking of a site specific, end-user based travel plan can provide solutions which ultimately provide arguments for less parking and, in turn, traffic. This can streamline the assessment process as well as saving capital costs associated with the provision of parking and associated congestion leading to road infrastructure upgrades.”
