Highways England maintains, renews, operates and improves the strategic road network – the motorways and main 'A' roads in England.
The Office of Rail and Road is responsible for monitoring and enforcing the performance and efficiency of Highways England, and holds the company to account for its management of the strategic road network.
In this episode of the Rail and Road Pod, we find out more about how Highways England are monitored and how that delivers benefits to road users. We're joined by Feras Alshaker, deputy director for roads and Stephen Bussell, senior highways economist from ORR to explain more.
We're also joined by Guy Dangerfield, head of strategy at Transport Focus, who delves into how it gathers insights from road users to help Highways England deliver improvements.
