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.”
