UHPC and Highways England

Current status and future opportunities

Adoption of Ultra High Performance Concrete (UHPC) in the UK remains limited. This contrasts with use globally which continues to grow. A state of the art study was undertaken by WSP on behalf of Highways England, the government-owned company responsible for operating and maintaining the UK’s Strategic Road Network, with objectives to identify possible applications and benefits of UHPC, barriers to use, and recommendations to overcome barriers and promote use on Highways England’s infrastructure. The findings of this study were presented at the 2019 International Interactive Symposium for UHPC in Albany, New York, and are summarised in this article.
