Royal Award for Highways Agency Traffic Officers

1 November 2011

 The Highways Agency’s Traffic Officer Service has won a prestigious international road safety award.

Receiving a Prince Michael International Road Safety Award Simon Sheldon-Wilson, Director of Traffic Management said:

“The Traffic Officer Service handles around half a million incidents a year on England’s strategic road network. Our traffic officers are always out on the road network or working in our regional control centres, they attend to vulnerable motorists, make sure that vehicles are recovered, set warning signs and signals and help people involved in collisions and other incidents. Traffic officers also play a key role in supporting the emergency services in dealing with incidents on the network.

“Traffic officers work during all hours and in all conditions and are routinely tested by incidents ranging from debris on the carriageway to the effects of the most severe winter conditions in decades. I am very proud of their dedication and professionalism, helping and supporting road users in a range of pressurised and sometimes traumatic circumstances and I’m delighted to accept this prestigious award on behalf of everyone within the Traffic Officer Service.”
