Workshop series keeps councils at the cutting edge


A series of free CPD accredited workshops supported by the Department for Transport's (DfT) start this week, bringing together the science and technology of data analysis and highways surface treatments with effective funding models to help councils get more life out of their roads.

Leading companies Gaist and ASI are holding the workshops to discuss how highways asset management has evolved over the last 10 years and how innovative road surface preservation techniques play an integral part in modern maintenance.


Key figures will be attending, including the DfT’s head of road maintenance, Steve Berry, and Howard Robinson, former head of the Road Surface Treatments Association, now managing director of ASI.

Seminars at the event will also discuss the current funding landscape with case studies on how councils have secured significant funding to help improve the whole-life costs of roads.

Smart technologies and data which can idenitify where new surface treatments can be used will also be discussed.

The events take place on Monday 3 June in Manchester, 20 June in Birmingham and 3 July London.
