Driving for Better Business Private Sector Summit

28 March 2019

As part of the United Nations Global Road Safety Week (6th -12th May 2019) which this year has the theme of Leadership, Highways England is hosting the Driving for Better Business Private Sector Summit, for CEOs and Board Directors of some of the UK’s leading businesses, at McLaren’s inspirational new Thought Leadership Centre.

Highways England operates and maintains the Strategic Road Network (SRN) of motorways and major trunk roads. It is an asset that has vital importance – not just to the success of UK plc, but to the success of your own business.

Incidents that cause disruption on our network, also cause disruption to your operations. They are often the result of poor driving decisions or poorly maintained vehicles and, frequently, as part of work journeys. The economic cost is massive and so a major shift in how non-compliance is dealt with is now underway.

New information from multi-agency events has highlighted problems with driver/vehicle compliance that are much more serious and widespread than previously thought.

This Private Sector Summit will bring together the top leaders and stakeholders from some of the biggest users of the Strategic Road Network and will allow us to share the latest strategies aimed at ensuring the effectiveness of this vital national asset.

There are only 100 places available, reserved for CEOs and Board members, at this key leadership summit.

Details of the programme and the registration form are here.

If you would like to register your interest in attending, please do so using this form no later than 12 noon on Friday 5th April 2019.
