Innovation
"We are potentially entering the “era of roads revolution”. A time when technological changes could drastically alter not only our country’s transport network and roads, but even our concept of mobility. Now is the time for us to look to the future and consider what it might mean."
Jim O’Sullivan, Chief Executive, Highways England
