The Strategic Road Network (SRN) Alliances of Area 3 and 9 have achieved BS ISO 44001:2017 Collaborative Business Relationships Standard. The achievement was sealed in January 2019, with certificates presented on 24th April 2019 at British Standards Institution (BSI) head office in Milton Keynes.
What is the Strategic Road Network (SRN) Alliance – Area 3 and Area 9?
A collaborative joint venture between 24 individual partners formed to adopt a common focus and shared approach to deliver a sustainable balance between meeting the needs of highways users, improving quality and minimising costs.
Joint strategic objectives are aligned to Highways England’s three imperatives:
- Safety – No one should be harmed when travelling or working on the strategic road network.
- Customer – Improving how what we do impacts those that use our roads.
- Delivery – On time and efficiently, whilst seeking innovations to realise the efficiency savings required of us.
