Who we are

Following the passage of the Infrastructure Act 2015 and consultation with key stakeholders and staff, the name of the 'Office of Rail Regulation' was changed to the 'Office of Rail and Road'. This change was introduced to reflect our new functions and duties as we assume responsibility for monitoring highways.

Within the ORR, we have established a new Highways Directorate, which will monitor the performance and efficiency of Highways England, a new UK government owned company tasked with managing and improving the Strategic Road Network  ( SRN ).
