Tuesday 17 April 2018

Delegates attending the Freight Transport Association’s annual Transport Manager Northern Ireland Conference, sponsored by Iveco, will have a unique opportunity to hear from Kathleen Callanan, Head of Enforcement at the Road Safety Authority in the Republic of Ireland, on what to expect in terms of enforcement when operating their vehicles south of the border.

  • Keynote address by John McGrath, Department for Infrastructure on infrastructure and Brexit related issues
  • Enforcement priorities and roadside stops
