On 7 April, the Department for Transport announced the launch of Live Labs 2, with £30m of funding for a new three-year UK-wide programme.
Since then, the Association of Directors of Environment, Economy, Planning and Transport – ADEPT – has been working closely with DfT to finalise the format for the new programme which aims to support the creation / maintenance of net zero highways and local roads.
ADEPT will be running in-person seminars across the UK at the end of June / beginning of July.
The aim of these seminars is to introduce the challenge and scope of Live Labs 2, and to ‘market test’ the programme approach with local highways authorities and their partners, before publishing the Live Labs 2 Prospectus and application details later this summer.
Details on how to register are available on the ADEPT website.
