View from the top: Working with the DfT
We have stepped up discussions a notch or two with the Department for Transport (DfT) concerning some proposals that would make a significant difference to LCRIG.
We have also received interest from a number of individuals following our President’s call to action the other week, so all in all, a very exciting time for us.
The Business Plan is going through its final reviews after which we will be in a position to share this more widely. You will see in the note from Alec, our Content Director, that the DfT have agreed to participate in a series of webinars giving all of our members the opportunity to ask them anything at these exclusive events. This is something unique across the highways sector and if ever there was a time to be a member, it’s now.
The webinars that LCRIG have been hosting have proven to be particularly popular, and the next event in February, sponsored by Gaist, is set to achieve a record number of registrations so make sure you don’t miss it.
During the course of this year we will continue to reach out to the membership to drive proactive involvement in LCRIG as this is the key to our continued success.
