News

The Club's meeting on 8th January 2020 was attended by 22 members and guests.  Unfortunately, for health reasons the planned guest speaker, Kieth Longmore, who would have addressed the subject of New Generation Power Unit, was unable to attend. However, we were able at short notice to invite Andy Latham from Salvage Wire who gave  a highly informative and thought provoking talk  entitled  "Ever Increasing Energy - How do First Responders deal with High Voltage Vehicle Incidents?"  He dealt with  the real and highly significant personal risks first responders, mechanics and salvage industry workers could face when working on Hybrid and All Electric powered vehicles.  Our grateful thanks go to Andy for stepping in with just a day's notice.

Salvage Wire is a company which  provides Leader Management and Leadership development for auto recycling professionals. Working in conjunction with partner companies they will deliver management and leadership training and development across the globe to vehicle recyclers  and salvage professionals, associations, conferences and trade bodies.

 President’s Message

Progress can be perceived in many organisations and institutions and the Norwich Traffic Club is no exception. In fact it has seen exceptional forward change since its inception in 1933. Much of this is allied to the development of transport in its many forms, but as a club we are not bound to merely worship the motor car.

We are committed to social and business aims which embrace all forms of transport – by land, sea and air.....   click here to see the May 2018 Presidents Report

 

A Brief History of Norwich Traffic Club

The Norwich Traffic Club was born on 25th January 1933, the date of the preliminary meeting at Langfords Restaurant at which it was founded with 31 members.

The Club came into being at the time when transport problems were assuming greater importance than ever before, and there was a need for some common ground on which responsible managers could meet irrespective of the forms of transport in which they were engaged.

Today the Club boasts around 100 members from all aspects of the Transport Industry, who meet monthly for informal Luncheons and to debate and discuss important topics related to Transport today. The opportunity for business networking is also at the core of the Club’s activity and best practice and business improvement develops from these meetings.
