Latest issue of Asphalt Now available to download

The latest issue of the Asphalt Industry Alliance’s (AIA) magazine Asphalt Now, is available to download.

Asphalt Now provides news and information about the asphalt industry. This issue highlights the highways sectors’ professionalism throughout the Covid-19 crisis, as we’ve all worked to keep the local road network functioning. It’s not surprising that Roads Minister, Baroness Vere, who spoke at our virtual Sharing Best Practice event, described those working on local roads as ‘the hidden heroes’ of the pandemic.

We also take a look at the Government’s recent Spending Review and consider the implications for local road maintenance against the backdrop of the findings from our 2020 ALARM survey.

Materials innovation continues to shape future highways and this issue again includes reports on new product innovation, plus secondary products research as well as local authority case studies on low carbon approaches to road works.
