Highways England is the government company charged with operating, maintaining and improving England’s motorways and major A roads. Our ambition is to ensure our major roads are more dependable, durable and most importantly – safe. Find out more about what we do. Use the search options to find a project or scheme in your area to learn more about how our road investment programme might affect you.
We are tackling congestion on some of the most important routes in England’s motorways by making them “smart”. Smart motorways use technology to actively manage the flow of traffic and increase road capacity.
The Dartford Crossing is the only road link across the Thames east of London – and it’s at full capacity as one of the busiest routes in the country. We propose a new crossing connecting Kent and Essex.
Working closely with local partners and stakeholders, we use route strategies to identify current and future constraints to economic growth that the performance of the strategic road network potentially causes, and identify how future delivery and investment plans might address them.
