Essex Highways

Essex Highways is a collaborative, integrated delivery Partnership, created in 2012 by Essex County Council and Ringway Jacobs. It’s aim is to manage and deliver local highway services, as well as improve public satisfaction on all aspects of the highway network by maximising the commercial and strategic opportunities available through a partnership.
Using data and asset knowledge staff have maximised resources, delivered efficiencies, improved the main roads, and helped Essex County Council achieve ‘Transport Local Authority of the Year’ in 2017.
The Essex Highway asset covers over 5,000 miles of roads, 1,500 bridges, 4,000 miles of Public Rights of Way and 127,000 street lights. It is the seventh largest network in the country and has some of the heaviest traffic flows.
Our Asset Management approach and strategy is all about planning ahead to maximise the use of our resources, protect the existing infrastructure and prioritise works for the best long-term benefit.
The partnership’s focus is on ECC objectives, which are to:

• Realise ECC’s Strategic Aims
• Meet customer needs
• Obtain value for money
• Promote improvement and innovation
• Reduce the cost of the Service
The partnership is supported by direct-resources and over 100 supply chain partners, the majority being Essex based.

Department for Transport 

We work with our agencies and partners to support the transport network that helps the UK’s businesses and gets people and goods travelling around the country. We plan and invest in transport infrastructure to keep the UK on the move.


WSP is one of the world's leading professional services consulting firms. We are dedicated to our local communities and propelled by international brainpower. We are technical experts and strategic advisors including engineers, technicians, scientists, architects, planners, surveyors and environmental specialists. With 7,800 talented people in the UK, we engineer projects that will help societies grow for lifetimes to come. 

We believe that positively promoting active travel and encouraging smart mobility is key to delivering sustainable communities, healthy cities and a strong economy. As cyclists ourselves, we understand the everyday challenges people face. And as transport professionals, we’re passionate about working with public and private sectors, national and local government, developers, contractors and co-professionals to tackle these challenges for the benefit of us all. 

We bring our cycling expertise throughout every project: from engaging with stakeholders and developing innovative scheme proposals, to identifying funding streams and sharing knowledge across our teams and the industry. Our partnership approach means we work collaboratively with clients to innovate and deliver robust, cost-effective solutions, helping to build our clients’ capacity through a project and deliver a lasting legacy. 

Our work is now influencing cycling design at a national level. Working with the Department of Transport, we’re leading on refreshing Local Transport Note 02/08 Cycling Infrastructure Design. We’re also leading on the provision of technical support to 38 authorities to help them complete their first Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plans. This is a new, strategic and long-term approach to planning local cycling and walking networks, which sets a clear narrative for future development and investment – and WSP is at the forefront.
