Burges Salmon sponsors Highways UK

Burges Salmon is a sponsor of Highways UK, a major new event for the Highways sector taking place in London from 25-26 November 2015.

20 October 2015

Our Transport team, which is part of the Venturer driverless vehicles consortium in Bristol, will be attending Highways UK and participating with presentations on the following topics:

  • Highways infrastructure joint ventures – how to maximise success and avoid bear traps.
  • Connected and autonomous vehicles – creating a legal and insurance system to drive change.

We will be on hand to talk about the major issues in the sector, including the following:

  • Health and safety law – criminal liability for manufacturers?
  • Data and the Highway – how to exploit it legally, who it belongs to and how to ensure security.
  • What can we learn from ORR's railway role about its likely approach to roads?
  • The liability landscape for driverless vehicles.
  • Will public procurement rules get in the way of new technology?
  • Consenting for new roads.
  • Who is going to own intellectual property in the digital transport age?
  • How can you form a JV that will stand the test of delivering such huge projects?

Please visit us at stand A15 throughout the conference.
