The City of Leeds, a city at the heart of the Northern Powerhouse Corridor in the UK has been chosen as the host for the first European Roads Infrastructure Congress, between the 18th and 20th of October, 2016.
At a time when the UK government is taking the lead in adopting innovative management and financing models for the delivery of road infrastructure, and with the establishment of Highways England as an independent body with a ring-fenced multi-annual budget, the 2016 event will bring together policy makers, academics, research institutes, road authorities and industry representatives from across the continent.
As the largest European Roads Infrastructure event in 2016 the Congress provides the opportunity for industry experts and political leaders to discuss current issues affecting the industry both formally in the evironment of over 60 sessions across the three days and more informally at the extensive social programme, which includes a civic reception at Leeds Civic Hall, one of the most iconic buildings in the city.
Leeds looks forward to welcoming delegates from both Europe and across the world, showcasing the latest developments in the Highways sector, against the backdrop of one of England's most iconic industrial cities.
