Highways England has announced plans for a road safety summit at the House of Commons.
Local government, the police and fire service as well as the Health and Safety Executive, DVSA and police and crime commissioners, have all been invited to attend and partner the Driving for Better Business work-related road safety programme.
The high-level event will take place at noon on 22nd January 2019 in the Terrace Pavillion in the Commons.
It will feature presentations from:
- Colin Matthews CBE, chairman of Highways England
- Jim O’Sullivan, chief executive of Highways England
- Martin Temple, chairman of the Health and Safety Executive
- Mark Phillips, chief executive of RSSB

Driving for Better Business is backed by the Department for Transport.
Roads minister Jesse Norman MP said: 'The Highways England Driving for Better Business Programme supports the British Road Safety Statement in raising awareness of the importance of work-related road safety.
'Road safety is not just a matter for government. It is an issue that requires support from the public sector, and that means organisations making sure they are compliant with current legislation.'
The summit is for local authority CEOs/heads of paid service, chief constables and chief fire officers to meet and focus on the many benefits of improving how work-related road risk is managed in the public sector.
