Welcome to the October 2014 UKRLG newsletter

Welcome to the latest newsletter.

The UK Roads Liaison Group newsletter aims to provide a news update on the work of the group.  Any feedback, please email at the address below.

The Review of the Resilience of the Transport Networks to Extreme Weather Events was published in July 2014 by the Department for Transport. The report was commissioned following the extreme weather of the 2013/14 winter.

Since then, work has begun to review guidance in the UK Roads Liaison Group (UKRLG) Codes of Practice that provide advice on lighting, structures and highway maintenance for local highway authorities.  The issue of climate change and resilience will be addressed, picking up the relevant recommendations from the Transport Resilience Review 2014. You can read about the review of the Codes in the Transportation Professional article below.
