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 (including utilities), associations, academia, key organisations 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.

LCRIG – community interest company

The Local Council Roads Innovation Group (LCRIG) is officially established as a Community Interest Company (CIC).

This means that the organisation can operate like any other limited company and can procure goods and services, lease offices and apply for government funding.

LCRIG also gives back to the community through charitable donations and reinvests back into the highways sector by enabling local government members to benefit from fully-funded services including events, recruitment and much more.

Join the LCRIG community and make the case for local roads

The Local Council Roads Innovation Group (LCRIG) provides Members with a unique platform to engage with councils, the DfT and the wider highways community.

By joining LCRIG, you will connect with a group of like-minded councils, organisations and individuals, all of whom are driving change through innovation and technological advances across the local roads network.
