Road Expo Scotland this week is set for a record year with registrations topping the 1,500 mark for the first time ever.
Event director, Bill Butler, said: ‘We are delighted with the numbers of people registering, which demonstrates the massive interest in Scottish infrastructure, with huge schemes ploughing ahead at the moment and the 11th ITS European Congress taking place in Glasgow in June 2016.’
Road Expo's free continuing professional development (CPD) accredited conference and exhibition in Edinburgh on 4 and 5 November will feature a keynote address from transport minister Derek Mackay.
Mr Butler added: ‘Obviously having the minister here is a huge boost and all eyes and ears will be focused on what he has to say on 4 November, especially as there is so much change and opportunity in the sector at the moment. For the full conference programme visit our website www.Road-Expo.com.’
Mr Mackay is likely to celebrate progress on a number of major infrastructure schemes including the largest transport project in Scotland’s history – the £3bn A9 Perth to Inverness dualling programme.
The minister could also highlight the nation’s positive record on delivering projects on time and on budget and the commitment of the Scottish government to support innovation in funding mechanisms.
