The highway network is the largest and most visible community asset for which the Council is responsible.

It is used daily by the majority of people and is fundamental to the economic, social and environmental well being of the City’s citizens.

It helps shape the character and quality of the local areas that it serves and makes an important contribution to all of the Council’s wider priorities.

The location of Wolverhampton in the regional and national transportation networks means that a large number of people from outside of Wolverhampton are also recipients of the service that it delivers.
