Business Plan 2012-2013

Publication type:Report


This year is the first in which the reduc­tion in the Agency’s bud­get, set out in the Government’s spend­ing review in 2010, takes effect. Over the last 18 months we have been work­ing to reduce the cost of oper­at­ing, main­tain­ing and improv­ing England’s motor­way and trunk road net­work. We have new ways of work­ing, new spec­i­fi­ca­tions, and new con­tracts in place — all of which mean that we are ready to meet this effi­ciency challenge.

Our fun­da­men­tal pur­pose is to keep road traf­fic mov­ing with­out unplanned inci­dent or delay. The Queen’s Dia­mond Jubilee and sub­se­quent Olympic Games mean that the whole coun­try will depend on our net­work for per­sonal trans­port and for deliv­ery of freight. For our staff and our con­trac­tors the sum­mer of 2012 presents an enor­mous test of our capa­bil­ity. We look for­ward to play­ing our part, and to keep­ing England’s roads moving.
