G20 Leaders Forum 2014
In November 2014, Brisbane hosted the Group of Twenty (G20) Leaders' Summit.
Working with the G20 Taskforce, GTA provided specialist transport and traffic management planning services for the event. GTA coordinated and prepared over 120 final traffic management plans, each having gone through significant changes throughout the planning and consultation stages with key stakeholders and security agencies.
The tasks involved direct liaison with government officials and the G20 Taskforce to determine appropriate traffic management measures for a number of road and footpath closures across Brisbane CBD and inner suburbs. GTA also provided an event management specialist on secondment to the G20 taskforce.
Although commissioned to do the work over a six month period, the complexity of the security and stakeholder requirements meant much of the work had to be done over three months. This required GTA to consolidate its efforts and uphold key project management principles to deliver the required traffic management planning in what was effectively a three month period.
The traffic management plans and recommendations were well received by the taskforce, security agencies and event stakeholders, and strongly assisted in the delivery of a successful event.
