After a career in highways spanning more than 40 years, Kieran Collins, Highways Commissioner at Cheshire West and Chester Council, is retiring next month (November). Here, he looks back fondly on his time in the sector and provides an update on his plans for the future.
Hampshire County Council is urging people to respect its frontline highways workforce in an effort to reduce the number of incidents of verbal abuse, threats of physical violence and aggressive behaviour by members of the public.
