I have to say it is the single best day I’ve spent in a conference in our sector. Every speaker had something to offer and I found myself taking away a very broad range of new ideas or little nuggets that positively challenge the way we are currently working.
FOR BETTER HIGHWAYS
Highways are often a local authority’s most valuable asset. But with budgets and resources continually stretched, and current practices not achieving desired results, it can be difficult to address their decline.
This is why the Local Councils Roads Investment Group (LCRIG) was established. It brings together local authorities from across the UK to discuss common challenges, share best practice and support each other.
Already, this has led to many highways being managed more effectively and efficiently, councils saving millions of pounds, and funding being secured from local, regional and national sources.
“It’s been fantastic working with Blackpool Council and the other members of LCRIG. I truly admire all the authorities’ devotion to asset management. Manchester owes a lot to the group, and I appreciate all the support you’ve provided us over the last few years.”
