Highways England

We Are There For the Community

Who We Are

Highways England is the company charged with operating, maintaining and improving motorways and major A roads. We were formerly known as Highways Agency.

Our Responsibilities

We are responsible for motorways and major (trunk) roads.. Our road network totals around 4,300 miles. These roads carry a third of all traffic by mileage and two thirds of all heavy goods traffic.

Major road network:

  • forms the economic backbone of the country
  • is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week
  • is relied on by communities and businesses across the country

Our Aims

Our ambition is to ensure our major roads are more dependable, durable and most importantly are safe.

We work hard to make sure our road network is:

  • free flowing – where routine delays are infrequent and journeys are reliable
  • safe and serviceable – where no-one should be harmed when travelling or working
  • accessible and integrated – so people are free to choose their mode of transport and can move safely across and alongside our roads

We further aim to:

  • support economic growth with a modern and reliable road network that reduces delays, creates jobs, helps business and opens up new areas for development
  • ensure our activities result in a long term and sustainable benefit to the environment

Our Fleet

 We operate a whole range of vehicles in our Fleet from Marked Traffic Officer Vehicles to a Roadside Repair Vehicles.
