About the online seminar
The end of 2019 heralded a General Election and a new Government pledging substantial amounts for both the Road Investment Strategy and to local authorities who manage 97.6% of the roads network. March 2020 then brought Coronavirus and the biggest upheaval in local authority service delivery since the 2nd World War.
Highways services have been remarkably resilient and the forced move to remote and agile working has changed the way we operate, possibly forever, 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 post covid.
Topics include climate change, asset management, 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 assess progress on ‘Well Managed Highway Infrastructure’ Code of Practice, new developments in road safety including road markings, technological developments and the use of data to drive efficiency and the future for major road funding.
