DfT appoints new director of roads

Highways England

The Department for Transport (DfT) has named Tricia Hayes as its new director-general of roads, devolution and monitoring.

Hayes, who replaces acting director-general John Dowie, was formerly aviation director at the DfT, and has been in the civil service for 28 years.

She said: “This is an exciting time to be taking up this key role, with the government delivering the biggest investment in roads for a generation. I’m looking forward to working with partners across the country to ensure that our roads and local transport networks, which help shape the day-to-day quality of life of all our citizens, are safe, modern and reliable. I can’t wait to get started.”

Hayes starts her new job in March.
