You’ll hear from the projects and their sponsors at Highways England; all have completed or are near completion and were successful in an SBRI competition looking at six areas:

  • Design
  • Construction and Maintenance
  • Connected and Autonomous Vehicles
  • Mobility
  • Energy and Environment
  • Operations
  • Air Quality

If you are interested in any of the six technical areas, are a potential developer, customer or investor or if you are involved with a Local Authority, watch this showcase event.

In addition there were two keynote addresses from Highways England about future vision and strategy, along with the needs that this competition fulfilled.
