This event has now ended


Join Colin Holm, from Highways England, at the next ICE East Midlands Chair’s Programme event, as he discusses sustainable development in the Design Manual for Roads and Bridges (DMRB). Chaired by Andy Warrington, ICE East Midlands Regional Chair, this online lecture will focus on the role of design in achieving sustainable development and in preparing for climate change.

Design is essential to achieve sustainable development. Design decisions affect the economy, the environment and society - both now and in the future. Good road design should have people at its heart by creating an inclusive, resilient and sustainable road network.

Colin Holm is a Senior Sustainable Development and Climate Change Advisor at Highways England. He was involved in updating the sustainability guidance in the DMRB. Colin will discuss sustainability and climate change policy development, as well as explain how developing DMRB helps to embed resilience to future climatic conditions.
