Upcoming Events

June 29, 2017

The June meeting of the ITE Manitoba Section will be held on Thursday, June 29, 2017 starting at 12 noon at the Masonic Temple, 420 Corydon Avenue (at Confusion Corner).

Presenting this month is Bill Menzies, Senior Transit Planner with Dillon Consulting.  Bill joined Dillon in 2012 after a 32 year career with Winnipeg Transit.  He was the City’s project manager for the Southwest Transitway Stage 1 project that opened in April 2012.  With Dillon, he has continued his involvement in the project, functioning as project coordinator for the development of the functional design for Stage 2, providing assistance during the P3 procurement, and undertaking design review as part of Dillon’s Owners Advocate role.  Since joining Dillon, he was worked on a variety of BRT, transit planning, and transit management assignments in Halifax, Quebec City, Montreal, Gatineau, Hamilton, London, Winnipeg, Calgary and Edmonton.

Bill’s presentation will provide an overview of the design, operations planning, and simulation modeling of the recently-completed Stadium Station at Investors Group Field.  Part of the “early works” of the Stage 2 project recently completed in the former Southwood Golf Course lands, the new Stadium Station is now ready for service for the upcoming Blue Bomber season and the 2017 Canada Summer Games.  With the station slated for its initial use shortly after the ITE luncheon, this presentation will provide you with a timely look at the station design and how it will work.

Please note that the price of the luncheon is $25.00 for members and friends and $15.00 for students.  Registration and online payment MUST be completed at least one week in advance (by June 22) through the link here.

Hope to see you there!
