The Strategic Road Network Monitor will be responsible for assessing the strategic highways company’s performance. This includes how it meets any requirements directed by government in the Road Investment Strategy or conditions in the licence as part of the company’s appointment. The licence document includes the need to support sustainable development. The monitor will need to take account of quality of design in assessing costs against outputs.
The purpose of Road User Focus is to act as a focal point for road users, gathering their views and surveying satisfaction and using this information to help shape evolving policy. Feedback gathered may include roads users’ views on aspects of design – particularly on elements that directly relate to the journey. We expect road user satisfaction will be influenced by scheme design and hence reflected in the findings of Road User Focus.
