The Complex Infrastructure Programme focuses on delivering nationally important infrastructure that enables economic growth. These intricate projects feature high levels of investment and often, close scrutiny. They involve engagement with a host of stakeholders.

The Smart Motorways Programme harnesses leading edge technology to tackle congestion, improve journeys and add much needed capacity to England’s motorway network. Our revolutionary new smart motorways use a range of innovative solutions to control the flow and speed of traffic, and provide driver information in real time on overhead signs.

Thanks to a once-in-a-generation level of investment in England’s roads, our Regional Investment Programme will deliver around eighty schemes. We will make the strategic road network more effective than ever before, and ensure that it links seamlessly with the nation’s local infrastructure.
