Customer focused innovations

After safety, customer satisfaction is our priority. We want to ensure a smooth journey for all road users travelling through roadworks and highway improvements. Here are some of the customer-focused innovations we are testing to help road users get on their way:

  • To help road users plan their journey we are collaborating with leading Sat Nav providers to integrate temporary roadworks and diversions
  • In order to reduce driver frustration, we use intuitive Variable Messaging Signs to provide accurate timescales for roadworks
  • We are testing roadside signage to reassure drivers that, just because you cannot see us, doesn’t mean there isn’t crucial work going on behind the scenes
  • To keep multi-lingual road users safe on our highways, we champion the use of signs that automatically recognise the nationality of a number plate and translate the message into the appropriate language
