We all Serve the Same Customers?

We Need World Class Public Services

We Need a World Class Utility Infrastructure


Richard wakelen head of street works traffic management act a utility view south west hauc january 2008

Where are we?

  • New Roads and Street Works Act 1991

  • A success?

  • Embraced by all parties?

  • World class co-operation between parties?

  • World class works in the highway?

  • Are we stuck in the 1990’s?

  • Traffic Management Act 2004 - Massive opportunity


Richard wakelen head of street works traffic management act a utility view south west hauc january 2008

What is the answer?

We need to improve communication, co-operation and co-ordination of works.

Partnering approaches can help make this happen.


Richard wakelen head of street works traffic management act a utility view south west hauc january 2008

What is Partnering?

  • Nothing new

  • People co-operating and working together

  • Common goals, commitment, leadership and trust

  • Performance and delivering benefits to all parties

  • Synergy

  • Covenant or contract

  • Common sense


Richard wakelen head of street works traffic management act a utility view south west hauc january 2008

Why Partnering?

“If you always do what you’ve always done, you always get what you’ve always got”.

We need to change!


Richard wakelen head of street works traffic management act a utility view south west hauc january 2008

Why Partnering?

Partnering is one way to build trust, improve co-operation, embrace change and deliver world class performance for the benefit of customers.

Partnership with Hertfordshire County Council


Richard wakelen head of street works traffic management act a utility view south west hauc january 2008

Is this ‘Partnering Concept’ different?

  • Not really

  • Signed agreement provides commitment

  • Balanced set of performance measures

  • Developing trust is a key area

  • Reasonable ‘test’

  • Delivering both Network Management Duties

  • Focus on performance, not money

  • Desire to find a different way


Richard wakelen head of street works traffic management act a utility view south west hauc january 2008

The question everyone is asking

Do East Sussex County Council and Hertfordshire County Council treat EDF Energy Networks any different to any other utility?
