STTS Team

STTS is a team made up of like-minded professionals working in various countries around the world with focus on delivering sustainable transport and traffic solutions to developing countries. Its initial focus is on the development of road safety management system in Nepal as its signature pilot project, which, when successful, can be replicated in other countries with similar environment.

The Management Team is composed of dedicated professionals nominated by its promoters. New team members replace old ones in rotation.

For large scale projects requiring system approach, STTS's team is made up of a project coordinator, component leaders and project leaders. Each major project will have a unique management structure. Small projects are led by a Project Leader who can get support from other project members.

Once a project is identified, it is assigned to a suitable component by the project coordinator. A component leader in consultation with the project coordinator and a project leader is assigned to manage it. This approach applies to small short to medium term projects. In case of a long term project such as the development of Nepal Road Safety Management System, Strategic Transport Plans or Road Operation (Traffic Management), all or multiple component leaders work together on a “system based approach”.

Any agencies, members of NRNA or community members from Nepal having desire to contribute to road safety can identify and lead the project that fit in, or contribute to, the development of Nepal Road Safety Management System. These projects may need to go through a simple screening process. The process is not for ‘gate keeping’ but for ensuring there are no overlaps, these fit in the system thinking and lessons can be disseminated for the benefit of other members.

STTS Team is made of following core teams at this stage. This can be expanded on need basis from within and beyond NRN professional network.

  • Core Team for Road Safety
  • Core Team for Transport and Traffic Planning
  • Core Team for urban roads and intersections design, operation, management (traffic analysis, traffic signal design and operation)

One of the not-for profit initiatives STTS has commenced in its inception phase is the development of Road Safety Management System in Nepal. Members of STTS is assisting the Government of Nepal to establish the system by forming the Project Group with the professionals working in Australia, New Zealand, USA, Thailand and Nepal.

Resource persons are called upon to lead the project when the projects of his/her expertise would get funding. It is expected the number of resource persons will grow over time as STTS would be able to secure project level funding. Preparatory Project on Road Safety Management System will scope all identified projects for short to medium term implementation. Core team members will continue to contribute for better road safety outcomes limited to their capacities voluntarily to develop projects even if the proposed projects would not be able to secure funding. Projects implemented through voluntary contributions would be of smaller size and less resource intensive.

Implementation of such small-scale projects and expected outcomes would not be at desired pace. Agencies can benefit from the vast knowledge and skill base of these resource person in finding the most appropriate solutions for the problem identified at different level of project implementation.

Depending on the need, local professionals of repute, who are currently contributing to road safety on their own efforts or would be willing to contribute in some ways, will also be requested to join hands and work together in one of the projects identified (or to be identified) in the Proposal. If there are any projects these and other local professionals are found working on road safety, attempt will be made to bring their projects under the "holistic" umbrella of the proposed management system. Most of these professionals were invited in the workshop of October 2014. They are known to STTS Team and have expressed willingness to contribute to this not-for profit initiative. In fact, a database system of individual professionals and organisations, who are prominently involved in road safety, will be established to create a forum for ongoing discussions and exchange of knowledge and experience in the field of road safety.

Some of the local professionals, who have expressed interest to contribute include:
