FMG celebrates 10 years supporting Highways England

FMG is celebrating 10 years of working in partnership with Highways England, to keep traffic flowing on 4,300 miles of English motorways and A-roads.

It has managed a tripartite relationship with Highways England and a dedicated network of Vehicle Recovery Operators (VRO’s).

They attend incidents ranging from breakdowns to major road traffic incidents, safely removing any broken-down, accident-damaged or abandoned vehicles ranging from motorcycles to HGV’s.

This critical round-the-clock vehicle recovery service includes the storage and disposal of uncollected vehicles and property, along with the collection of statutory charges.

FMG’s head of rapid response Jim Dawson said: “We are proud to celebrate this significant milestone in our long-standing relationship with Highways England and we value the history we share.

“England’s major road network forms the economic backbone of the country and we share a joint commitment to creating safe and reliable journeys for all road users.

“As a trusted partner since 2009, we have firmly established a robust yet flexible, fully compliant and certified recovery network, with integrated technical systems to maximise efficiency of information sharing.”

In addition to vehicle recovery, the collaboration optimises their shared focus to continually identify safety improvements.

Last year, it significantly reduced the time drivers spend at the roadside following an incident, with the successful launch of Immediate Dispatch, a solution which reduces the time taken for VRO’s to attend an incident by 24%.
