The National HAUC(UK) Convention

Date: 17-05-2018

Venue: Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester


With the industry facing an evolving policy environment and ongoing operational pressures, the 2018 HAUC(UK) National Convention offers a chance to understand the strategic and day-to-day impact for you and your organisation.  With efforts to improve consistency and transparency in the industry, the Convention will consider:

  • The latest on policy developments from across the UK including permits and lane rental schemes, and the Scottish Government’s Transport Bill.
  • The opportunities of technology and data to improve consistency and collaboration.
  • The impact of greater devolution on approaches to road and street works, including the new ‘metro mayors’.
  • The future scale and skills of the industry’s workforce.
  • Improving the understanding of the role of road and street works as an enabler for new infrastructure and housing.

The HAUC(UK) National Convention will offer the chance to hear a variety of perspectives on these challenges and opportunities, and offer a forum for discussing solutions and the collective way forward with peers from highway/road authorities and utilities.  We hope you can join us to shape HAUC(UK)’s future priorities.
