Engineering skills needed to deliver the biggest roads upgrade in a generation

Published on: 31 Mar 2016

As part of Department of Transport’s £15 billion investment strategy, an extra 1,300 lane miles are to be built in the UK by 2020. For civil engineers this means delivering the biggest upgrade to roads in a generation.

To bring clarity and help the sector shape a better, more reliable and modern network, the Institution of Civil Engineers is holding a one day roads conference which will allow for in-depth analysis of performance, investment priorities, future demand and technological change.

Delegates will hear exclusive updates from Department for Transport, Highways England, the Office of Rail and Road and practical case studies on successful highways planning, funding and delivery.

Sessions in the afternoon will specially focus on the new technologies affecting the sector, the new transport skills needed and how to re-engineer roads to accommodate autonomous vehicles.

The event presents an excellent network opportunity, with representatives of the top construction contractors already attending.
