Seasons Greetings

A message from Dave Neal, Managing Director – Connect Plus Services and Andy Dean, Chief Executive – Connect Plus

We’d like to wish all of our colleagues, industry partners and customers an enjoyable festive period.

December is the perfect time to reflect on the year gone by and look forward to the fresh start the new year will bring. It’s a time to step back and remind ourselves of the huge responsibility, and privilege, we collectively share to keep the iconic M25 running safely, day in, day out.

This monumental infrastructure, which is vital to the UK economy and keeps families and communities connected, never sleeps. The M25 is the busiest road network in Europe, enabling over 73 million journeys each year.

This short video was created a few months ago to help tell our story. It highlights our strategic approach to maintaining the network and the extent of the work we deliver as well as the importance we place on balancing the needs of the network and our assets, with the needs of road users, our local communities, and stakeholders.  The work that we each do enables our customers to travel safely and for that we feel very proud.

Our partners in the framework community have also been key to our success this year, we’re one team and that’s how we deliver. Thanks to our community approach, there can be as many as one thousand people carrying out vital works on the M25 at any one time.

We’d also like to highlight the huge effort being made to foster an inclusive working environment here at Connect Plus and CPS. Our strength comes from our diverse skillset and the different types of people within our organisation. There have been numerous D&I initiatives this year and we look forward to building on this is in 2024.

A huge thank you must go to our colleagues who will be working during this time to ensure that millions of customers can continue their journeys safely.

Take care of yourselves. We hope you can all enjoy a well-earned rest and special time with loved ones. We look forward to working even better together in 2024.

Best wishes,
