The speaker Max Lay (AM) will describe the enormous transport legacy created in the 19th century; how it arose and reached its transformative stage.Initially there was a strong British influence as the Industrial Revolution started, but this decreased as France and south-west Germany became the dominant change makers towards the end of the century. The innovations were due to individual inventors and innovators rather than corporations. How they achieved their successes will be discussed.
Max Lay is an internationally recognised expert in road and transport engineering. In 2005 he was made a Doctor of Engineering (honours cause) by RMIT University. The citation included "Dr Max lay is one of the most influential civil engineers in the country".
