KTN is supporting the Costain Intelligent Infrastructure Challenge focused around intelligent solutions for future highways.¬† The winning entries will be able to pitch to a panel of industry experts, including KTN, at the Highways UK 2019 event in Birmingham on 6-7 November.

Innovation lies at the core of the government’s Industrial Strategy to put the UK at the forefront of the industries of the future. The strategy is geared around four Grand Challenges designed to mirror major global changes, one of which is the Future of Mobility.
Innovations in technology and business models have the potential to radically alter how people and goods move around our cities and places and at the same time create significant social benefits including: safer streets, a more inclusive transport system, smoother journeys, more active travel and better public transport. Innovations in mobility can transform our society.
