COMMENT RE HIGHWAYS ENGLAND’S NET ZERO HIGHWAYS PLAN

Commenting on the recently released Highways England’s  Net Zero Plan, AIA Chair Rick Green said:

“These are ambitious targets, but the asphalt industry is committed to playing its part in helping to reduce emissions and support the UK Government meet its climate change goals.   We look forward to continuing to work with Highways England and collaborating on its net zero plan for the strategic road network. This will also deliver benefits for our local roads – which represent 97% of our network – by providing a blueprint to help local authorities meet their own net zero carbon ambitions.”
