Civils and Materials Innovation Hub
Highways UK has a central role supporting and promoting innovation in the highways sector - we want to be a catalyst for innovation and accelerate the uptake of new ideas.
From self-healing asphalt to modular, off-site or automated construction techniques, there is huge opportunity through the use of innovative products, components, systems, processes, plant or materials used in the construction and maintenance of highways projects to reap many benefits ranging from improved durability, efficiency and sustainability to enhanced safety and comfort.
The Civils and Materials Innovation Hub is a competition-based showcase for such innovations and designed to connect innovative ideas with real world highways clients.
Sponsored by AECOM and with the support of the Mineral Products Association, the Civils and Materials Innovation Hub is seeking to raise awareness and acceptance of new and innovation products and processes used in the construction and maintenance of the UK's roads networks.
