LGTAG members will be aware of our recent publication Transforming the Narrative stressing the importance of proper planning and funding of Highway Maintenance throughout the Country. Unfortunately despite the efforts of most London Boroughs to deal with this issue Central Government is being even meaner with funding for maintenance in London and the attached article explains the situation.Transforming-the-Narrative-London-Borough-Perspective.pdf (35 downloads)
This successful event run by CEPHAS involved the LoTAG Chair Satbir Gill. The papers from the event may be useful to people in the field as attached. Please note we have permission to publish on TAG’s website but these papers should not be reproduced without permission of CEPHAS.

LEAN THINKING IS SHAPING OUR ROADS OF THE FUTURE
HMEP launches LEAN toolkit for highway services to deliver greater efficiencies and help to improve the condition and upkeep of England’s roads for customers.
A new toolkit to help ‘re-think’ highways planning and management was launched by HMEP in December at the London Technical Advisors Group’s (LoTAG) annual conference. LEAN, a key driver for delivering efficiency savings, is seen by HMEP to be fundamental to improving end-to-end planning and delivery of roads and services to customers.

Seasons Greetings to you all.
When we look back over the last year we cant help but reflect on the tremendous progress made. This was probably summed up best by Matthew Lugg at the recent ROAD 2011 Conference, when he stated ,I cant believe how far London has come over the last 12 months. It is also pleasing to note that based on our success, the Midlands Highway Alliance (MHA) is now looking to develop a maintenance Contract as part of its current suite of collaborative contracts.

A big thank you to all who attended the Road2011 Conference at Centre Point on 21st November. The morning session was aimed at strategic issues both management and operational across London, and in the afternoon issues surrounding non pavement assets were examined with presentations from Structures, Lighting and Drainage experts.
The event lived up to it’s reputation, challenging “business as usual” and provoking lively debate. 27 of London’s 33 boroughs were represented as well as TfL and seven service providers. We look forward to seeing you all at Road2012.
