Highways

Market challenges

A modern, accessible and reliable highway network throughout the UK is essential to future growth and prosperity. The UK road network keeps Britain moving, acting as the backbone to the economy and the wellbeing of the nation. The highways sector must ensure that any investment contributes to the development of a network which is agile, resilient, sustainable and safe.

Advances in technology provide not only the biggest challenge to the sector but the greatest opportunity. As safety, congestion and environmental issues become increasingly significant as traffic volumes increase, the tipping point for electric and connected vehicle adoption moves closer. The industry needs to act now collaboratively and embrace the advances in digital technology, drive more productive delivery and ensure smarter operation of our highway infrastructure.

 Key to the successful application of innovative technology will be the skills of the workforce. Our ability to continuously invest in and evolve our capabilities will be essential to deliver the infrastructure of tomorrow.
