Highways form a critical infrastructure for society, supporting the country’s economy through the quick and efficient transport of people and goods. This infrastructure is developed within a complex engineering system governed by a specific set of legislative requirements. The highway is maintained and operated within a highly political environment through central government, and particularly by local highway authorities. Such an asset is often managed and maintained through complex contract arrangements, requiring key skills in leading, managing and developing services through partnership between the public and private sectors.
