This document sets out our long-term vision for Highways England to play a central role in networks covering a wide range of benchmarking activities and comparator organisations. However, such networks can take a long time to develop so the plan also sets out the areas where we will concentrate our benchmarking efforts in the shorter-term, focusing on areas that are most likely to inform the development of RIS2, particularly:
- internal benchmarking of performance and efficiency across Highways England’s regions; and
- safety, where comparable international data are more likely to be available.
We will provide an update on progress with, and any changes to, our plan before the end of 2016.
