At Highways England the safety of everyone on our network matters; we recognise the wide reaching and devastating impact of suicide for both individuals and communities and the important role we can play in supporting a wider community-based approach to suicide prevention.

Highways England’s Suicide Prevention Strategy sets out our vision that no one attempts to take their life on our roads.

Our approach focuses on multi-agency working and will allow us to make a real difference to reduce the numbers of suicides on our network. Suicide is not inevitable, it is preventable.
