Highways England executive director of operations Nick Harris said: “We know that drivers want and deserve good-quality, safe roads which is why since 2015 when Highways England was created we have replaced more than 4,400 miles of road surface.
“This new arrangement will help us tackle uneven road surfaces faster, in a more cost-effective and efficient way – keeping journeys safer and offering smoother journeys for the millions of drivers who use our roads every day.”
