As the major client for most of the highways projects in the UK, Highways England have been important in encouraging the use of Mission Room technology. They recognize and communicate how Mission Room improves safety and efficiency, and have highlighted this through various awards.
Highways England is a government-owned company with responsibility for managing the core road network in England. Their road network totals around 4,300 miles. While this represents only 2 per cent of all roads in England by length, these roads carry a third of all traffic by mileage and two thirds of all heavy goods traffic. They will deliver £11 billion of capital funding committed between 2015 and 2020.
