Embodied carbon in road building

Response to this request is delayed. By law, Brighton and Hove City Council should normally have responded promptly and by (details)

Dear Brighton and Hove City Council,

Please let me have a copy of carbon emission data associated with the whole life cycle of materials, energy use and construction of the following road:

1. A259 (King’s Road) Seafront, Highway Structures (‘Arches’) Renewal Programme

This is sometimes referred to as “embodied carbon”.
For the avoidance of doubt this is not a request for carbon emissions data directly related to the use of the road by all kinds of vehicles over the 60 year assessment period.

The time frame for this request is from the date that the council agreed the Outline Business Case (OBC) to the date that the road is open to traffic.

Please let me know if these assessments of carbon were carried out following guidance contained in PAS2080 Carbon Management in Infrastructure and which organisation or consultancy /consultancies carried out the assessment.

Thank you for your help.

Yours faithfully,

K Welch
