CIHT NW Annual Highways Conference

Highway Network Resilience in a Changing World

This conference will inform you about the ways in which we can create, enhance and maintain a resilient transport network through the experience of a range of speakers with first-hand knowledge of planning for, and responding to, disruptive events.

Making best practice widely available is one of the Institution's key objectives; members and non-members alike are welcome to attend this free event.  There is, however, a limit on the number of delegates we can accept - so book early!
