Highways England is in its first year, with an ambitious programme of improvements to the strategic road network that will see over £15 billion invested for the benefit of road users.
Meanwhile, the Department for Transport has introduced a new scheme for local authority highway maintenance capital funding. Authorities must now complete a self-assessment questionnaire based on efficiencies, stakeholder management, life-cycle planning and asset management.
Currently, there is no organisation to integrate these two networks, although Highways England has some role in connecting the strategic and local road networks.
Highways Delivery 2016 – Making the Network Work, is a one day conference which brings together key stake holders from both the strategic and local authority road networks to help define best working practice and find solutions to commonplace problems.
Topics covered at the event include:
The future strategy for national highways in the UK
Direct contracting; the impacts to the sector
Can investment in infrastructure stimulate economic growth?
Collaborative working between Highways England and Local Authorities
Local Authority Self Assessment
Bi-and tri-county partnerships: developing a combined authority
