Roads for a modern Britain
Highways UK is a major event bringing together those responsible for the planning, operation and future-proofing of the UK's road network.
The event is predicated on the profound changes resulting from the formation of Highways England, the government-owned strategic highways company.
These changes herald:
- Greater funding certainty
- More efficient delivery
- Stability for the supply chain
- A long-term vision
At the same time there is an expectation that the industry will deliver long-term efficiency savings, a better quality service for road users, and an improved network that supports jobs and growth up and down the country.
This is driving much greater use of innovations and smart technologies, working alongside the established road building, maintenance and traffic management sectors; bringing new players into the market and creating entirely new supply chains.
Combining a high-level conference, industry briefings and a major exhibition over two days, Highways UK is the place to discover what these changes mean in practice and how your organisation can profit from this exciting new era for the UK's highways sector.
