How will highways & transportation respond to climate change?

CIHT’s Spring Conference – Vision 2030 is taking place on the 1 April 2020 at City Road Conference Centre, London and will set out what changes all those involved in the sector will need to make to define and deliver transportation in the future.

Sue Percy CBE, Chief Executive, CIHT said:

“Highways & Transportation is not just critical to economic performance and productivity, but it addresses other key public policy areas where it is often not recognised as part of the solution or sometimes even seen as a barrier. This conference will explore how we can work together to create a sustainable sector that will contribute to our net-zero carbon commitments.”

The CIHT Spring Conference provides an opportunity to tackle the new political agenda, gain access to top-level strategic content, position you and your organisation at the heart of the debate and get your questions answered.
