Will Spurr

Head of Road Design, National Highways

I lead the Road Design Group in Safety, Engineering and Standards in National Highways and have worked for the organisation for 20 years this year.

I have a diverse range of experience to bring to my role and a real passion to make our network the safest and most reliable in the world.  Most recently, I have worked on delivering our commitments to enhance Smart Motorways through Stocktake and TSC recommendations.

I’m lucky to have a fantastic team of experts who lead on subjects from Traffic Signs, Road Layout Standards, Roadworks policy innovation, Network Occupancy and Road Concepts including Enhanced Dual Carriageways and Smart Motorways.
