Highways England is the wholly government-owned company responsible for modernising, maintaining and operating England’s motorways and major A roads.

Maintenance and improvement projects: Highways England plan maintenance and improvement projects carefully to allow road works to be completed safely, in a cost effective way while keeping disruption to road users to a minimum. It does as much work as possible overnight and when roads are less busy in order to keep more lanes open for road users at peak travel times.  Drivers are advised to check their route for road works and allow extra time for their journeys where needed.  It has a variety of journey planning tools that road users can use to check travel conditions on the roads we manage, and it will do all it can to keep road users informed.

Safety at roadworks: Highways England is working with the industry and road users to reduce the risks of working on the roads.  For the safety of road workers and all road users, when you are approaching roadworks:

  • Get into the correct lane in good time – don’t keep switching.- Be alert for works’ traffic leaving or entering roadworks.
  • Observe all signs – they are there to help you.
  • Keep a safe distance – there could be queues in front.
  • Concentrate on the road ahead, not the roadworks.
  • Keep within the speed limit – it is there for your safety.
  • Be alert for road workers, the roads are their workplace.
