Project Manager, Major Projects Customer Service & Stakeholder Division, National Highways

I’m passionate about exploring and developing Innovation. I currently manage a programme of work known as the Roadworks Innovation competition. The Roadworks Innovation Competition is exploring the wider marketplace for innovative solutions outside of our traditional supply chain, which could improve customer experiences of roadworks. In collaboration with Belfour Beatty, Costain and Kier, National Highways are now closely working with 9 Small-Medium sized enterprises, and one larger enterprise to explore how these innovative solutions can help us solve wider industry challenges
