Two innovation competitions have been run by Highways UK leading towards live pitching to a panel at this year’s Highways UK event at the NEC on 6-7 November.

Category winners will enter a final from which the judges will select the overall competition winners.  KTN will be involved in the selection of the category and overall winners.
