97.6% of the roads network is managed by local authorities. Whilst spending on A roads has improved, budgetary pressures have seen that spent on minor roads at a decade low. The APSE / Survation survey continues to find widespread support for more money to be spent locally on roads and highways. The public hugely values highways maintenance, street lighting and winter maintenance and resilience services. This seminar will explore the core issues which will impact on the sector in the near future as well as the longer term challenges.

Topics include the future investment options for our roads network, new technological developments and innovation in highways maintenance, street lighting and winter maintenance and resilience services.

Delegates will also get the opportunity to debate the new risk based approach to the new 'Well Managed Highway Infrastructure' Code of Practice, new developments in road safety including road markings, energy saving street lighting schemes, material innovation and the future for major road funding.

With industry experts and local authority case studies, this seminar is a must attend event and will provide an excellent learning opportunity for Highways and Street Lighting teams; bringing forward ideas for cost efficiency, innovation and funding streams.

This years event also incorporates the Innovation Awards for:

  • Winter Maintenance and winter resilience services
  • Street Lighting
  • Highways Maintenance Services

Winners will be announced on the evening of Wednesday 20 March 2019 during the course of this two day learning seminar.
