The UK lags behind other European countries in recycling tar-bound materials. However, in this new Chartered Institution of Highways & Transportation (CIHT) CIHT podcast, the guests emphasise the benefits of utilising recycled materials in the construction and upkeep of infrastructure such as roads and pavements.

Joining Stuart Guthrie, Technical Director at CIHT partner Sweco, are Mark Batcheldor, Hampshire County Council, and Stuart Gready, MD of OCL Regeneration.

The guests also highlight how attitudes among local authorities, National Highways, and contractors in the UK towards materials like CRBM are shifting due to increasing costs, environmental concerns, and supply chain challenges.

In this podcast you’ll learn:

  • Why a top designer wants to use more CRBM
  • The misconception that recycled materials are the poor relative of traditional primary materials
  • How and why a local authority has chosen to use the materials wherever possible as part of their approach to combatting climate change
  • How and why we should be changing to recycled cold materials
  • Why we should all be looking to collaborate to drive changes

After you’ve listened to it, explore how OCL can facilitate this and provide the solution.
