Full Details

Set up to drive the debate on the subject of managing skid resistance on the UK road network, Managing Skid Resistance UK – The Facts and the Friction – will give local authorities and other road operators insight into how to better manage skid resistance and understand how this can be successful delivered as part of a more proactive maintenance strategy.

With several challenges facing road operators including declining budgets, how can local authorities delivery maintenance programmes more effectively in a way that encompasses the full armoury of surface treatments and techniques at their disposal?

Organised by the RSTA in association with WDM and WJ Group, this one-day conference will discuss:

• The role of skid resistance in keeping roads safe

• Delivery schemes that are consistently reducing carbon

• What are your legal responsibilities?

• Designing for skid resistance and how to chose the right materials

• A new approach to skid measurement

• Managing friction-investigatory levels

• Surface dressing, retexturing and predictive maintenance – an update

• Looking to the future – a panel debate

The conference is supported by IHE, CIHT, LCRIG and the RSTA.
