REMOVING a staircase from a motorway and being the first on scene to a serious car crash can be a typical day for The Highways Agency’s traffic officers.
Reporter Miranda Newey spent the morning shadowing two of the agency’s traffic officers responsible for keeping traffic running smoothly in the region.
FORMED 10 years ago, The Highways Agency was created to operate, maintain and improve the road network in England.
Nationally, employees of the government body work around the clock to keep traffic on 4,300 miles of roads including motorways and major A roads moving.
