  • Tuesday October 17, 2023

IHE Chief Executive Steve Spender, accompanied by president Martin Polland and senior vice president Katharine Kelly, attended the Houses of Parliament on 11 September for the launch of a new report by the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for Better Roads entitled Working for Better Roads. 

The report calls for the re-instatement of effective ringfencing of funding for local road maintenance. The IHE and the Asphalt Industry Alliance (AIA) jointly support the APPG, which is an informal group of members of both Houses of Parliament and is chaired by Sir Christopher Chope MP. Details of the work of the APPG for Better Roads and a copy of the report can be found at www.appg-betterroads.org.
