NWSRG joins the Local Council Roads Innovation Group (LCRIG) as a Partner member
The National Winter Service Research Group (NWSRG) has joined the Local Council Roads Innovation Group (LCRIG) as a partner member.
The NWSRG is a members group dedicated to advancing understanding of best practice for winter service delivery, taking the best from currently available knowledge and supplementing any gaps with new knowledge and research.
Richard Stacey, NWSRG Chair commented: ” It is a fantastic moment to become a Partner member of LCRIG. This will allow the NWSRG to build on the work they have already completed, with support from our Technical Advisory Group in promoting best practice for the winter service, building on this and taking it to the next level. It will allow us to undertake new and innovative research, including what impact the winter industry has on climate change. It is a very exciting time and opens a new chapter in the NWSRG story and I am really looking forward to what opportunities this partnership will bring.”
