About Highways England

We're the government company which plans, designs, builds, operates and maintains England’s motorways and major A-roads, known as the strategic road network (SRN). We manage and improve the strategic road network to make journeys safer, smoother and more reliable.

Our priorities are safety, customers and delivery.

We want everyone who uses and works on our roads to get home safe and well. By planning and designing roads that meet the highest levels of safety, we can reduce the number of fatal or serious injuries.

Our roads are some of the safest in the world. Our traffic officers, who patrol them 24/7, are at the frontline of keeping you safe. They’re supported by control room operators through activities such as setting signs and signals to alert you to hazards in the road. We also run regular safety campaigns to inform and educate people how to drive safely on our roads.
