Thousands of our industry colleagues have gathered in Hall 1 of Birmingham’s NEC for Day 1 of the huge Highways UK event, and we’ve been gathering a flavour of the event on Highways Voices.

These podcasts are brought to you thanks to the support of Re-flowKier HighwaysCauseway TechnologiesNavtech Radar and SWARCO.

In today’s podcast we hear some of National Highways CEO Nick Harris’s comments in the keynote session about smart motorways, the future and why investment in the industry is necessary right now.

You’ll hear about stopped vehicle detection from Re-flow plus the latest thinking from Causeway Technologies and Re-flow, while connected vehicle expert Andy Graham talks all about the latest innovations as demonstrated by the Transport Technology Forum here.

We also head into the start-up zone and get details of tomorrow morning’s keynote theatre session.
