NATIONAL HIGHWAYS – Official Prime Partner of this year’s Week of Action
As the official Prime partner of Project EDWARD, National Highways will be providing support across England to help highlight the importance of investments in the strategic road network of motorways and major A roads and how it contributes towards safer roads. This support will help to raise awareness of the strategic road network’s role in road safety and encourage people to take action to reduce the risks while driving.
Commenting on the partnership, Jeremy Phillips Head of Road User Safety at National Highways, said:
“Casualty reduction is a shared responsibility across multiple stakeholders, including road users. Working in partnership with members of Project Edward throughout the week of action, we aim to raise awareness that safety on our roads is everyone’s responsibility, and to motivate road users to play their part. Along with our delivery partners, National Highways is there to support road users in keeping themselves safe and we will highlight the measures put in place to deliver that support.”
Project EDWARD is delighted to announce that GRIDSERVE will be supporting and powering the road trip this year
The 2023 Project EDWARD week of action is taking place from 15 – 19 May to coincide with the UN Global Road Safety Week. Gridserve will be supporting and powering the three legs of the road trip that will criss-cross the country visiting the very best examples of road safety projects.
Along the way, some of the most influential thought leaders in road safety will be invited to come along for the ride and join the team ‘on the road’ to share their insights and experience. In addition to the road trip stops, contributions will be coming in from all four corners of the United Kingdom as we feature projects from England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
