Highways Agency

Highways England operates, maintains and improves England’s motorways and major A roads.

Highways England is the government company charged with operating, maintaining and improving England’s motorways and major A roads. Formerly the Highways Agency, we became a government company in April 2015.

We do not manage all roads in Britain:

We are not an enforcement organisation. If someone is breaking the law you should contact the police on 101 – or on 999 if urgent or life threatening.

Traffic and transport legislation, regulations and policy are the remit of the Department for Transport.
