Highways Collaboration - as it should be!

Oct 30, 2011

London local government has pioneered some excellent collaborative category programmes in the last year - these included commercial fleet, postal services, ICT and highways management. The last one is really promising involving nearly all of the London boroughs and Transport for London. E-auctions, standard specifications, sub-regional contracts and more all feature somewhere in this project.

The Transforming London Highways Management (TLHM) Project is running a workshop / road show on Wednesday 9th November 2011 - for details click London Highways Management Roadshow. Apart from London local authorities , this workshop will be of great interest to readers in other parts of the country too. So this blog is just an unashamed plug for TLHM. Readers can also find out more by going to this link

.See you on 9th November
