Last week I announced to the House the formal appointment of Highways England as the strategic highways company with effect from 1 April 2015 and published a number of key governance documents.

Today I am publishing the final part of the formal governance framework, the Highways England Framework Document. This sets out the relationship with Government, especially the arrangements for accountability to Parliament and stewardship of public money.

As I have made clear before, Ministers will continue to be accountable for making sure the network is managed responsibly, in a way that safeguards value for public investment and meets the needs of road users and wider society, both today and for future generations.

A copy of this Framework document has been placed in the Libraries of both Houses and is available at:
