Highway Maintenance 2014
Delivering now for future resilience and
Now in its 16th year, Surveyor's annual Highway Maintenance
conference remains the industry's trusted source to arm highway
practitioners, and is researched to feature the most contemporary
insights and practical advice vital to maintaining our essential
transport infrastructure. This years Highway Maintenance
event will also see for the first time break-out conference
sessions which will focus on flooding and the development of
SUDS on the road network.
The beginning of 2014 saw a succession of floods across the
country over a sustained period. The frequency and volume of
flooding is having a severe affect on UK roads and their rate of
deterioration since the first extreme floods took place in 2007.
Highway Maintenance will consider the development of SUDS within
local authority areas and take a more holistic look at flooding on
the road network. There will be a focus on how councils are
currently tackling the challenge severe flooding presents them, as
well as considering how implementing strategies now will make them
more resilient in the future.
