Our wider work
We want our roads to work more harmoniously with the communities that live alongside them and the environments that surround them.
Through these funds we're:
- working with partners to protect biodiversity and prevent flooding
- creating footpaths and cycleways alongside our roads, and working with local bodies and transport providers to integrate our network with other transport options
- supporting local plans for clean air that involve parts of our network, and helping people make the transition to zero-emission vehicles
- researching and deploying new technologies that have the potential to revolutionise travel on our roads
"The funding is making a tangible difference. Like our major restoration projects at the Wellington monument in Somerset and the Penshaw monument in the North East."John Powlesland - Head of Grants, National Trust
We embed environmental considerations into all our activities, from infrastructure design to scheme delivery. We’re also working to reduce our own carbon footprint as a company.
