Roads For The Future Competition Announced


Roads For The Future Competition Announced


JANUARY 2018

The National Infrastructure Commission along with Highways England and Innovate UK, have launched a new competition which will seek ideas for making the UK road network ready for connected and autonomous vehicles – including using the latest technology.

It will look for ideas as to how existing infrastructure can be adapted, how roads shared by driverless and driven vehicles can work, and how these changes can be introduced alongside charging networks for new electric cars. It will also be looking for ideas that can work on different types of roads, whether a residential avenue, a high street or a motorway.

Sir John Armitt, Chairman of the National Infrastructure Commission: 

“We’re seeing a revolution on our roads, as more and more people move away from the traditional petrol and diesel car and towards new electric vehicles – the next step, driverless cars, will make an even bigger impact. Our Roads for the Future competition offers the chance to be at the cutting edge of shaping how we travel for generations to come.  That’s why we want to put people’s minds to this test."

Plans for a Roads for the Future competition were announced as part of the Chancellor’s Budget statement in November.
