Time: 12-1pm

The IHE South Western Branch would like to invite you to their next lunchtime webinar on Thursday 18th January 2024. In this presentation Beth Lewis and Nicole Turley will provide an overview of the Live Labs programme and the A382 project as well as covering the innovations under consideration, progress to date, challenges and successes.


Devon County Council is working in partnership with Milestone and the University of Exeter on the A382 improvement scheme as an opportunity to drive carbon reductions through the design, construction and maintenance of the project, with the ambition of it becoming the UK’s first carbon negative road. The A382 (Including Jetty Marsh Link Road) – Carbon Negative Project is one of 7 projects to receive funding from ADEPT’s Live Labs 2 programme and aims to radically accelerate the reduction of carbon emissions associated with the construction and maintenance of UK highways. It aims to demonstrate that by combining current and developing initiatives, carbon negative highways are possible.

Presenters – Beth Lewis, Principal Engineer, Major Projects, Devon County Council & Nicole Turley, Sustainability Manager, Milestone Infrastructure

Beth Lewis is a chartered civil engineer and principal engineer for major projects at Devon County Council where she has been working alongside the carbon reduction team and is currently managing the design of the A382 scheme and the Live Labs 2 project.

She has been involved in the A382 project during tender and ECI stages supporting with environmental compliance, ecology and carbon, and is now the Milestone lead for this LiveLabs project.
