How to save money and green the highways

October 08, 2020

Event: Thursday, 22 October 2020, 13:00–14:00

Are you working in highways or railways and involved in designing or building new infrastructure schemes? Perhaps you are involved in widening infrastructure schemes or are tendering for this type of work. For an increasing number of linear infrastructure schemes, their impacts on biodiversity net gain, carbon and cost are all important considerations.

On 22 October, RSK’s leading agricultural and environmental consultancy ADAS will outline how we can apply a more whole life-cycle approach to linear infrastructure schemes using low-nutrient soil to reduce maintenance and waste, save money and carbon, and enhance nature.

For those in the highways sector, we hope this will inspire you with ideas for the Environment Designated Fund.

Chaired by Kat Evans, Associate Director, RSK Habitat Management and ADAS Environment. Speakers will include Phil Sterling, from Butterfly Conservation, who will demonstrate how he created a nature-rich embankment on the Weymouth relief road and saved more than £270,000 for Dorset County Council; Sarah Wynn, from ADAS, who will examine the carbon implications by comparing the standard and alternative low-nutrient-topsoil approaches; and John Little, from Grass Roof Company and a CIRIA BIG Biodiversity Challenge award winner, who will show how he incorporates habitats into structures and uses recycled materials to create beautiful, low-maintenance, biodiverse environments.
