Dear Road Authority partners,
iRAP and the global transport community lost a friend, a mentor and a leader earlier this year. Gary Liddle AO was a remarkable person, with a truly authentic style of leadership that was admired by all in the road industry. His passing from MND on the 22nd February 2023 was a sad day for all including the iRAP family and friends worldwide. Gary volunteered his time and wisdom as the Chair of iRAP from 2017-2022 and as a Trustee for 9 years.
Given his lifelong contribution to the public-sector and transport, iRAP is honouring Gary’s legacy with the Gary Liddle Memorial Trophy that will be awarded annually. With iRAP’s vision for a world free of high-risk roads, the Gary Liddle Memorial Trophy will be awarded to the public agency making great progress towards that life-saving vision. Your agency is invited to share your success and nominate for the inaugural Gary Liddle Memorial Trophy that will be awarded at the XXVIth PIARC World Roads Congress in Prague from 2-6 October.
Please see https://irap.org/irap-gary-liddle-memorial-trophy/ for entry details and all the best with your submissions that are due by 11 August 2023.
Thanks and Regards
