The role will be an essential part of the team monitoring and enhancing the performance of the KRN. 

You will lead on implementing a monitoring framework, examining routes to understand daily issues and problems and developing strategies for addressing these.

About the Key Route Network  

The West Midlands Key Route Network (KRN) represents 7% of all local roads and is a collection of local highways which carry 50% of all traffic and is critical to the region’s economy and for connecting us into the strategic road network. The KRN is operated and maintained by the seven local authorities and the West Midlands Combined Authority has concurrent powers with the local authorities for road safety, bus lane contravention, permits and air quality. With the opening of the Regional Transport Coordination Centre (RTCC) in January 2020, this role will form a core part of the team strengthening the fresh approach to management of the KRN within the RTCC.

Who we are

Transport for West Midlands (TfWM) plans, develops and manages an integrated transport system for the West Midlands that is reliable, affordable and accessible for all. It is the transport arm of the West Midlands Combined Authority.

A standard setter in the industry, our achievements are regularly recognised nationally, most importantly as the winner of ‘City Region Authority of the Year’ in 2016, 2017 and 2019 at the National Transport Awards. 

Whether it’s developing and delivering new infrastructure, collaborating on future mobility projects, operating the West Midlands Metro or helping customers to keep moving, we need creative and innovative talent to join our already excellent team and help us make a real difference to residents, businesses and visitors travelling in and around the West Midlands. 

This is a remote working opportunity until a date is agreed for the WMCA workforce to return to our usual place of work at 16 Summer Lane, Birmingham.

Our priority is to keep all our employees safe and well during this time. We will be working remotely for the foreseeable future, and we are doing everything we can to ensure all our employees can enjoy a comfortable remote working space.
