Our mission

LCRIG’s mission is to facilitate fresh thinking in innovation and collaboration and to act as a conduit between the ‘highways community’ consisting of politicians, councils, council groups, the supply chain, key organisations, industry associations, academia, training and educational providers and the media.

LCRIG also supports the Department for Transport, working in partnership with the ‘highways community’, to enable change through using innovative techniques not only to help achieve savings and efficiencies but to ensure that we all work together to ensure that road users see improved highway services maintained to a standard that people expect and deserve.

Our people
