Highways and Transport Services

The Highways and Transport team manages 5,100km of roads, leads on new and exciting projects and supports the growth of the county. They are dedicated to making sure the county’s roads are as safe as possible, working hard to get any defects fixed, watching the weather for snow, ice and flooding, and working with communities to ensure the streets are clean and safe.
