Future roads could be built using asphalt made from grass cuttings and ‘carbon capturing’ cement. These are among the ideas to receive a share of £30m government funding.

Seven projects spread across the UK from Lanarkshire to Devon have been awarded £30m in funding via the Live Labs 2: Decarbonising Local Roads competition.

Live Labs 2 is focused on tackling the long-term decarbonisation of highways infrastructure and assets across local roads.
