KEEPING DRIVERS INFORMED WITH IMPROVED WEBSITE

Drivers and others looking for information about England's motorway

and trunk road network will find that the Highways Agency's website

has been given a facelift. Users will find the site more attractive

and easier to navigate and use. It incorporates four new services to

help drivers plan their journeys.

The website is the agency's most important communication tool, as it

registers well over a million page impressions a month.

Visitors to our website can now get real-time traffic information

from the National Traffic Control Centre. They will also be able to

also get traffic-flow forecasts to help them plan their future

journeys.

Details of all our road projects are now stored in a database, which

visitors can search by simply clicking a map or selecting a road from

a drop-down list. There is also a live and continuously updated

stream of timely and relevant information for the road user.

Archie Robertson, Highways Agency Chief Executive, said:

'We are delighted to be launching our redesigned website, as part of

our efforts to improve the ways that we keep the public informed. Our

aim is to provide an efficient and logical website where people can

find real time traffic information and locate details of our road

projects quickly and easily.'

The website will be constantly updated with news and information to

ensure road users and stakeholders are always kept up-to-date with

Highways Agency activities.

The new website can be viewed at: www.highways.gov.uk
