Since then, ORR has been holding National Highways (formerly Highways England) to account for the management of the strategic road network - the major motorways and major A roads in England.

In this episode, we hold conversations with the Chief Executive of ORR, those that lead the company's Highways Monitor and also with the Chief Executive of National Highways and Transport Focus to find out about some of the steps ORR has taken to increase the transparency of performance, safety on England's roads and how the management of roads will look in the next five years.
