About us

Milton Keynes is a place of opportunity.

The city is expanding through housing and industrial development and with our ‘can do’ attitude we embrace innovation and technologies such as the e-scooters, driverless pods and cars, delivery robots and rapid transit systems.

The Council’s Highways team is a key part of this development.

Our Scheme teams work closely with developers in the new areas of the city and our Asset team are always looking at how we can apply new techniques and technology to maintain our roads, the unique redway network and other assets. We’re also involved in big events that come to MK like the Rugby World Cup and Women’s UEFA!

The opportunities to grow and learn as an individual and a professional are here. We support and develop our Highways team to be the best they can be, whether it’s training opportunities or getting involved in different projects to get the right experience.
