After finishing their last evaluations, all 7 jobs have actually effectively satisfied the requirements required to take the â¤ 30 million ADEPT Live Labs 2: Decarbonising Resident Roadways program forward to release and procurement.
The last evaluations came at completion of a 3 month fully-funded mobilisation stage where task groups established their propositions into a defined and costed program of works. The objective of this stage has actually been to guarantee that each possible Live Laboratory can effective shipment.
