Highways Agency toolkits

Ginny Clarke - Network Services Director

Wel­come to the Net­work Ser­vices (Net­Serv) Directorate’s Toolk­its home­page — a col­lec­tion of advice for use by those within the Agency, our ser­vice providers and stakeholders.

The Jour­ney Time Reli­a­bil­ity, Man­ag­ing Down Cost Pres­sures and Health and Safety toolk­its are a knowl­edge bank of ideas that range from the well estab­lished to the inno­v­a­tive. In some cases ideas may need to be taken for­ward as part of a trial or Depar­tures from Stan­dards may be required.  For the Jour­ney Time Reli­a­bil­ity and Man­ag­ing Down Costs toolk­its, a named spe­cial­ist owns each idea within the toolk­its, and will be happy to explore the suit­abil­ity and applic­a­bil­ity of the idea to your par­tic­u­lar scheme. Each sheet for these toolk­its pro­vides a clear descrip­tion of the idea, cou­pled with:

  • Exam­ples of the idea being used, either in the UK or elsewhere.
  • Advice on applic­a­bil­ity and deliverability.
  • Essen­tial references.
  • Con­tact details for the Idea Owner.

The Health and Safety toolkit con­tains an overview of the idea, as well as tech­ni­cal infor­ma­tion and a key fea­tures box. If you have any ques­tions about this toolkit, please email healthandsafetytoolkit@highways.gsi.gov.uk and a mem­ber of the health and safety team will help you with your enquiry.

Your sug­ges­tions for new ideas for con­sid­er­a­tion for inclu­sion in the toolk­its are wel­come as is any feed­back on the sys­tem. I hope that you find the toolk­its useful.
