|More details||In August, Highways England (now National Highways) announced that it is accelerating the use of warm mix asphalts as standard across its supply chain as part of a drive toward net zero carbon emissions.
Previously requiring an application for a departure from standard, Highways England is now asking all those involved in the construction and/or maintenance of the strategic road network, particularly designers and main contractors, to use warm mix asphalts (WMAs) as it moves towards net zero.
WMA technologies can offer enhanced efficiencies and lower production carbon, with CO2 savings of up to 15% when compared to conventional hot mix asphalts.
Robin will present his view of why and how this will be implemented with an opportunity for questions at the end.
