The panel will help to drive road safety improvements across National Highways’ network of motorways and major A roads.

The long-term objective is to encourage greater strategic alignment on road safety issues between member organisations.

National Highways’ chief executive Nick Harris said: “We want everyone using our road network to travel safely and reliably. Through the road safety panel we have the opportunity to work with a range of key stakeholders, influencers and partners, as well as road user groups.

“Chief Constable Jo Shiner brings a wealth of valuable experience and expertise to this role and we look forward to working with her as she leads the group towards successfully achieving our ambition that nobody should be harmed using, or working on, our road network.”

Ms Shiner, the National Police Chiefs’ Council lead for roads policing, said: “I welcome the opportunity to be part of this new national panel which brings together a range of statutory partners and other valued stakeholders in finding solutions to improve safety and remove risk from the UK’s road networks.

“Death and serious injuries on our roads cause misery to victims, families and those other people affected including our emergency services.

“Collaboration and partnership are absolutely key in our mission to make road travel as safe as possible for everyone and that is what we will strive to do.”
