·         Ensure that high quality monthly reporting on programme performance (including road space performance) is produced and present this reporting internally and externally, always giving a positive impression of the function and CPS.

·         Take an active role in the M25 community through participation in community forums, workshops and other meetings and groups. Contribute towards these groups in support of improving the overall M25 community performance.
