  • Cambridgeshire County Council

We are proud to provide expert skills across our programmes of work. These include project, contract, commercial, risk and quality management. We keep health, safety and wellbeing at the forefront of everything we do.

Our team sits between the Transport Planning team, who set our future strategies and pipeline of projects and our Maintenance team, who take on the projects we deliver upon completion to operate and maintain.

We provide a wide range of services to drive the delivery of our projects. We also maintain key service functions across the Highways and Transport directorate. We have 5 core service area within Project Delivery.

Project delivery core service areas

In each service area we promote and champion proactive change and seek to innovate the way we deliver our projects. We are creating digital by default processes, reducing our carbon impact, and developing ways we can positively impact our communities.

We have core services that support the wider Highways team. This model means we are able to share learning and promote an efficient way of working.

The majority of projects are born in our Transport Planning team. They are a product of a strategy, which is driving a positive change for our communities.

When it's the right time, Project Delivery take on the project. We ensure the funded scope is delivered. Once the project is complete, the assets are handed over to Highway Maintenance.

The Programme Management Office, Contracts & Commissioning and Finance & Business Support teams work across the Highway service.
