As part of improving road users’ experience through roadworks, Highways England considers working patterns such as 24 hours a day on an individual scheme basis. There are a number of factors that influence Highways England’s ability to adopt this approach such as: maintaining the safety of road workers and road users, location, type of work being undertaken, needs of road users and neighbouring communities, availability of resources within the construction industry and any cost implications.
