Facing Change Together
Across governments, there is wide and increasing recognition of the vital role that street and road works will play in the delivery of the UK’s ambitious infrastructure priorities for this next decade. Our country is on the cusp of an infrastructure revolution that will place the street and road works sector firmly into the spotlight, as we make provision and build the support for an economy fit for the information and carbon-neutral age. The industry is well-placed to deliver. Across the UK, our sector is leading and supporting the charge to accelerate gigabit-capable broadband coverage and the decarbonisation of our economy. Our role in helping to meet these ambitions is even more important as the UK charts its way out of the economic turbulence caused
To ensure our sector continues to prioritise the interests of consumers and the wider public and ensures the UK continues to thrive, we have developed this five-year vision which sets out our aspirations for street and road works. We have identified five main themes that will be at the heart of our future work:
- Skills and workforce
- Environment and decarbonisation
The Convention has a strong focus on these areas and looks at how we can all rise to the challenge. The Convention will highlight the need to be agile and how the industry will have to adapt to change. The development of partnership between promoters, authorities, and respective governments is key.
