Net Zero Roads

Reimagining an intercity road for a net zero carbon world

Highways are central to how we move and live and connecting us to jobs, education and healthcare. 

However, the challenges with their use and future development are becoming increasingly clear, with a sharp focus now being placed on their carbon cost and the negative impacts they can have on communities and the adjacent environment. 

Road networks are also vulnerable to climate change, with more extreme weather events increasingly testing their resilience. This illustrative graphic highlights six narratives which are critical to developing a positive future for inter-urban roads. They illustrate the need to change the way we think about highways and transport to help achieve a more resilient, net zero carbon world.
