With traffic forecast to grow by as much as 59% on the Strategic Road Network by 2050, improved infrastructure across the UK must be balanced with the Government's pledge to achieve net-zero by 2050. 

During this panel discussion, we will discuss the current issues and emerging solutions around challenges ranging from changes to transport uptake due to COVID-19 and the need to decarbonise our road network, to the growth of cities and how investment can keep pace with rapidly changing mobility technologies. 

Join us live to:

  • Understand the impact of COVID-19 and what future trends for our road network may look like
  • Learn how the sectors are approaching the decarbonisation of our road networks
  • Discover what technological advances are being developed and implemented to help create more efficient and effective roads
