Arcadis to provide consultancy support for National Highways

National Highways has appointed Arcadis to provide technical consultancy support for the implementation of its Operational Technology Strategy (OTS), for the benefit of all road users, operators and those who live adjacent to the strategic road network.

Arcadis, in partnership with 4way Consulting, will provide a range of technical advisory and design skills to support National Highways’ delivery of the OTS.

Implementing the Operational Technology Strategy on the Strategic Roads Network will significantly improve the quality and safety of road users' journeys and reduce noise and enhance air quality for those living adjacent to strategic roads. The vision is for operational technology to bring trusted, sought after, timely, relevant information, to the heart of the customers’ experience, helping National Highways deliver world leading personalised services.

The OTS was published in 2022 and outlines a roadmap for enhancing the current OT estate within National Highways. The project is expected to be delivered over a period of five years, with opportunities for extension.

David Threlfall, Senior Technical Director at Arcadis said:

"Arcadis is honoured to play a key role in the development and implementation of the Operational Technology Strategy for National Highways. Delivering high-quality services that will have a positive impact on road users, operators, and local communities. This fits Arcadis’ vision of improving quality of life, by providing digital leadership and sustainable solutions with the many skill-sets that we can bring to the project."

Paul Canning, Operational Technology in Digital Services, National Highways, added:

“The collaborative approach with both Arcadis and 4way and our stakeholders has enabled a constructive approach to be developed in a matter of months. Both organisations have demonstrated an ability to bring in the right people, with the right expertise, at the right time to deliver technical consultancy to help deliver the Operational Technology Strategy.”

This win builds on Arcadis' established collaborative working relationship with 4way Consulting, delivering the Tunnels Digital and Operations Strategy, and now managing for the client the production of a suite of specifications for tunnel technology to support the tunnel strategy. It also builds on Arcadis’ long-standing role supporting National Highways’ Digital Services Directorate and providing Operational Technology liaison and governance throughout the development and implementation of the Smart Motorways Programme.
