TMS Host Engineers from Hong Kong

Over the past 18 months, TMS played host to Joseph Wong and Wallace Soh from Ho Wang SPB Limited, who are based in Hong Kong, to enable them to gain experience in road safety auditing.

The aim was to be able to apply their skills learned in the UK for similar work in Hong Kong.  On their first visit to the UK in August 2022, Joseph and Wallace completed our 10-day RoSPA Road Safety Engineering course whilst attending various Road Safety Audit site visits as Observers.

On their return to the UK in summer 2023, Joseph and Wallace observed the road safety audit process in more detail and attended numerous site visits in West London and in the counties of Gloucestershire, Northamptonshire, Leicestershire and Yorkshire.

The schemes ranged from junction improvements including roundabouts, traffic signals and priority junctions, new link roads and streets within commercial and residential developments. By visiting a diverse range of highway schemes, Joseph and Wallace were able to experience different types of schemes at varying stages of the audit process.

For one highway scheme at Prologis Park, Uxbridge, our audit team had the pleasure of having Joseph and Wallace join them for the Post Construction Stage 3 Road Safety Audit, a scheme they were also involved in at detailed design stage during their first visit.  Not only was it good for them to revisit a site they had previously been involved with, but to meet back up with the initial audit team and be included as Team Members.

TMS Technical Director, Hammy Aulak, commented:

“It was a pleasure to host Joesph and Wallace, who were both very keen to learn and engage fully in the Road Safety Audit process. I am confident that the knowledge and experience they have gained will help them to identify road safety hazards and suggest improvements to schemes in Hong Kong. We look forward to working collaboratively with them in the near future.”

Joseph Wong also commented:

“We are most grateful for allowing us to join as external team members for the five audits that give us a variety of experience.  We enjoyed every one of them particularly the two that we had participated in as night time RSA auditor”.
