Cardno’s Transport Planner wins Australian Institute of Traffic Planning and Management (AITPM) Young Professional Award
Cardno is excited to announce that Rachel Kohan, a graduate transport planner in our Sydney office, has been selected as the NSW winner of the AITPM Young Professional Award.
Rachel joined Cardno in November 2014 as an undergraduate transport planner for the transport planning team while completing her Bachelor of Environmental Engineering majoring in Transport. She has experience in active transport plans, strategic transport studies and production of concept design reports across New South Wales.
‘I am so pleased that Rachel has been recognised as one of NSW’s young transport planning stars. She started in Cardno’s transport planning team as an undergraduate almost two years ago and her achievement in the profession to date is reflected in her receipt of this award. Rachel’s application demonstrated her long-held interest in improving transport networks and her commitment to contributing to AITPM’s work in NSW’, said Larissa Miller, Cardno Transport Planning Team Lead, NSW.
The AITPM prides itself as a leader in the traffic management and transport planning industry with over 1,000 members across Australia and New Zealand. The Institute offered the opportunity for one first year transport graduate or final year student in a related study from each state to attend the 2016 AITPM National Conference. Additionally, the winner also receives membership of the Institute for one year, a seat on the Institute’s NSW branch committee to represent young members’ interests, and a certificate of excellence by the Institute.
