Intelligent Infrastructure at Highways UK
A key and developing part of Highways UK's remit is to identify, promote and discuss innovations and technologies that enable environmental, safety and economic benefits to the road network. The Intelligent Infrastructure Hub (IIH) - a unique area of curated space dedicated to intelligent infrastructure and associated transport technologies was a popular component of the 2016 event and it will further develop and grow in 2017 with the Intelligent Infrastructure Challenge.
Increasingly the sector is recognising the opportunities, potential and benefits of intelligent infrastructure and other technology-based solutions. But the key challenge remains how to accelerate the uptake of these technologies within the highways sector and its established supply chains.
