Who we
work with

Customer Care

Northumbrian Roads is committed to providing an excellent service delivery that is totally customer focussed.

We receive very few complaints despite the very visible and disruptive nature of our business which can often impact on traffic access, pedestrian movements, businesses, shopkeepers, public transport and emergency services.

We have assembled our own "Customer Care Services Standards Booklet" which has been circulated to all our employees.

All our policies are communicated via a number of different means such as:

  • Employee Handbook
  • Company Newsletter
  • Employee Appraisals
  • Site Induction (briefing)

All our employees receive training in Customer Care and are expected to follow our code of conduct accordingly.

When our operations affect high footfall areas such as high streets, we notify stakeholders in advance and invite feedback via our Site Liaison Officer to mitigate any difficult circumstances in advance.

We do this as standard practice.
