Ambitious project to make A382 link road the UK’s first carbon negative highway

Innovative proposals for the A382 link road development near Newton Abbot to become the UK’s first “carbon negative” highway have received Government support.

The Live Labs 2 programme, funded by the DfT (Department for Transport) and organised by ADEPT (Association of Directors of Environment, Economy, Planning & Transport), has today (Wednesday 25 January) announced that we have been successful in our £3.7 million bid for the project to decarbonise the construction and maintenance of the road.

As well as delivering our A382 carbon negative highway pilot, we will also be working in partnership with some of the other successful Live Labs 2 projects to share pioneering findings

The aim of the projects will be to change established approaches within civil engineering, infrastructure and construction sectors.
