Hounslow Highways recently featured in the Telegraph EcoReport supplement. A snapshot of the article can be read here: The triple bottom-line of sustainability has long been defined as development that delivers economic, environmental and social benefits. While a long-term highways contract may not seem like a typical sustainability project, on closer examination, it is.

In mid-2012, the London Borough of Hounslow finalised a 25-year deal with Hounslow Highways – an organisation made up of VINCI Concessions, Ringway and Barclays Infrastructure Fund – and secured long-term funding for the borough’s highways network and upgrade of the roads, footpaths and street lights. With more than £100m being spent on the borough’s streets in the next five years, the infrastructure will not only be returned to a high quality, but will also be efficiently maintained for years to come.

Hounslow Highways works with the council’s regeneration teams to align the project to the medium and long-term development aspirations of the council. A successful, sustainable city requires development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability for future generations to meet their own needs.
