Financing panel discussion: Securing funding and alternative revenue streams

14:40 - 15:20 Strategy Highways Theatre

The recent spending review has made it ever more challenging to secure access to funding. This session will explore how highways authorities are looking to plug this gap

  • Additional revenue streams: EV charging points, moving traffic offences, lane rental, road user charging, filming fees, smart lighting, wifi, solar power, etc
  • Secure outside funding, PFIs etc
  • Doing more with less: If funding from DfT becomes more challenging, what will survive and what must be sustainable?
  • Innovative future revenue streams, such as kinetic energy/other ways of generating energy or revenue from the streets (bullet point to be reviewed)
