Roads For a Connected Britain
Highways UK is a major event bringing together those responsible for the planning, designing, building, maintaining, operating and future-proofing of the UK's road network.
With growing recognition of the relationship between transport infrastructure investment and economic growth, the highways sector is enjoying once in a generation levels of investment. At the same time the sector is undergoing dramatic and rapid change with many major disruptors starting to play out that are having a profound impact on how people and goods move around. Equally there is an expectation that the industry will improve its productivity and deliver long-term efficiency savings, a better quality service for road users, and an improved network 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.
