South West

At Highways England we believe in a connected country and our network makes these connections happen. We strive to improve our major roads and motorways – engineering the future to keep people moving today and moving better tomorrow.

We want to make sure all our major roads are dependable, durable and, most importantly, safe. That’s why we’re delivering £15 billion of investment on our network – the largest in a generation.

In the south west we are helping to transform connectivity between the region and the rest of the country. We’re delivering improvements to the M49 near Bristol which will both ease congestion, and help support economic growth. We are also developing plans for the improvement of the A30 in Cornwall, the A417 in Gloucestershire, and the vital A303 and A358 corridor. These routes are crucially important to the economy of the south west.
