Today the Office of Rail and Road has published its approach for monitoring Highways England’s investment in the strategic road network.
20 responses were received to the consultation from a wide range of stakeholders. In general respondents were supportive of the proposals and the ORR have retained the overall approach set out in the consultation. The document has, however, been updated in a number of areas.
Later this week ORR will be publishing its approach to the second Road Investment Strategy (RIS2) which will set out how they will discharge their responsibilities and how they plan to engage in the programme over its multiple phases, and an update on the benchmarking of Highways England.
