The WRA (UK) Dinner Debate takes place on evening of 14th November, with a one-day Congress taking place the following day on 15th November in Cardiff, Wales.

This year’s Congress will look at the United Kingdom’s path to a low carbon future. We have long recognised that transport has adverse impacts on the environment. Avoiding dangerous climate change means we must act, both in the UK and internationally, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from transport.   Do we have a coherent strategy for delivering low-carbon infrastructure and what does new infrastructure mean to UK businesses?

The event will discuss the roadmap that will deliver the infrastructure to provide low carbon transport, drawing examples from international best practice, examining how we make better-informed decisions, how we can work with energy, automotive and CAV technology more effectively. 

The World Road Association (PIARC) has established a Special Projects fund to enable it to respond outside the usual four-year Technical Committee cycle to emerging issues and priorities identified by its members – this event will provide the latest insights into this.
