Promoting positive change to deliver the best environmental outcomes in the Highways sector

The Government’s ambition for the next 25 years is to revolutionise our roads and create a modern strategic road network that supports modern Britain and is investing considerable sums in the enhancement and long term maintenance of the Highways network including many individual schemes. This not only presents an environmental challenge but also provides a huge opportunity to deliver these schemes more sustainably.

At Temple, we are playing our part. Our internal specialists combine to offer a single-source solution, which provides the right solution the first time, which saves time and money. With an impressive and long track record providing advisory and specialist services to national bodies such as Highways England and local authorities, as well as key stakeholders and communities, we are well versed in the challenges and opportunities.

Our experience, working with national agencies and local authorities, ranges from the early stage environmental appraisal of options and strategy to car out Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA) for major schemes, including Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects, as well as the delivery of schemes providing a comprehensive suite of construction environmental management services.
