CIHT – local highways maintenance challenge

The Chartered Institute of Highways and Transport (CIHT) is to undertake a review looking at ways of delivering a sustainable solution to the local highways maintenance challenge.

The review which is to be delivered in early 2019 will look at a number of key areas:

• Creating a vision for effective and sustainable maintenance of the local highway network
• Outlying the opportunities to inspire and create real change for the industry
• Exploring alternative funding models and news ways of managing the local highway network
• Considering best practise and innovative solutions from around the world
• Overcoming the barriers and challenges that have limited reform before

Matthew Lugg, CIHT President said: “The CIHT Lugg review will set out to influence government regarding how we can provide sustainable solutions to change the way we deliver local highway maintenance. We must improve the proliferation of pot-holes we see across the UK and improve the delivery of our transport services to people.”

“There are real opportunities for us to look at how we can change the way we not only deliver and maintain local highway roads but also how we can operate as a sustainable industry in the future.”

CIHT will be collaborating with key strategic partners to deliver this review over the next few months and more information will be published in early 2019.
