LCRIG welcomes two new members

The Local Council Roads Innovation Group (LCRIG) is delighted to welcome Story Contracting Ltd as an Associate Member and Sefton Council as a Council Member.


Story Contracting Ltd provides award-winning rail, plant and construction solutions.

Simon Higgens, Business Development Director at Story Contracting Ltd said “As Story Contracting Ltd continues to expand its Highways offering, it is keen to learn best practice from other contractors, while understanding the wider requirements of local councils. Story will also look to introduce to LCRIG members the ideas, methods and innovations that it has developed on its current road schemes in addition to those identified in its rail, nuclear and energy divisions”.


Sefton Council is the governing body for the Metropolitan Borough of Sefton in the county of Merseyside, north-western England.

Gary Jordan, Highway Asset Manager at Sefton Council said: “Sefton Council are delighted to join the LCRIG Community. We look forward to working with partners, sharing best practice and tapping into the excellent opportunities that LCRIG creates.”.



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 community of like-minded councils, organisations and individuals, all of whom are driving change through innovation and technological advances across the local roads network.

Fully-funded places are available for public sector members, and discounted rates are available for private sector members at LCRIG events.

LCRIG has four membership types:

Local highway authorities and ‘Teckal’ organisations.

Organisations providing products or services to the highways sector.

Government and professional bodies, associations, working/research groups.

Universities and academic research organisations.

As a Community Interest Company (CIC), accredited to ISO44001, the international standard for collaboration, LCRIG’s purpose is to ‘give back to the community’ and we are not for profit.
