About National Highways

National Highways is the government owned company that builds, operates and maintains England’s motorways and major A-roads.  

As well as managing one of the world’s most advanced road networks, we provide information and assistance for four million road users who use our roads every day. This includes helping people plan where they can stop to take a break at any one of the 113 motorway service areas on our network for a better, safer journey.

Whatever the nature of your disability, our access guides for motorway service areas take the guesswork out of planning your journey, giving you the information you need about facilities along your route.

You can contact us 24/7, every day of the year if you have questions about your journey.

British Sign Language users can use the online interpreting service, SignLive to contact us. This is a free service which you can access online, or by downloading the SignLive app.

Visit our website for more information about safer driving on the motorway, and what to do in an emergency or breakdown.

We do not manage all roads in Britain:
