“I am relishing the opportunity to help the UKNMB meet the significant challenges that lie ahead. Our strategic priorities will include reducing the impact of congestion and tackling accessibility, safety and security issues. Technology is key for improving reliability and what drivers experience on road networks. Intelligent Transport Systems are no longer discussed as an innovation that is coming. Urban Traffic Management and Control and Sat Nav have arrived and we need to fully understand the implications and opportunities for networks. The development will be interoperability and a change to getting information from the car, to the roadside and back to the car".
