Major and Strategic Roads Programme Manager
£51,379 - £57,821
At Midlands Connect, we think differently. We’re looking for enthusiastic and creative transport planners and economists to join our ambitious team as we take the Midlands’ transport priorities into the next decade.
As the Sub-National Transport Body (STB) for the Midlands, we are developing the next regional plan which aims to boost economic growth for our population of more than ten million, whilst at the same time reducing transport’s part in the climate emergency. We are growing our team as we put ourselves at the forefront of solving this industry-defining question.
With only seven STBs across the whole of England, this is a rare opportunity to have a leading role in the development of the next regional transport strategy.
STBs have a specific role to play in the national planning for the Strategic Road Network and newly defined Major Road Network, as we identify the highest priority locations for future significant investment in road infrastructure. You will work with our local highway authority partners to understand their needs and help them develop compelling business cases for Major Road Network (MRN) and Large Local Major (LLM) scheme investment. You will also work closely with
Highways England as part of the Road Investment Strategy (RIS) process; ensuring that they understand what our priorities are.
