The future of how our roads & streets “work” for all of us is something we can all contribute to and as Trustees we are keen that the enthusiasm and interest of William Rees Jeffreys had for making roads more attractive and enjoyable can be sustained in the very different world of future travel.

On behalf of the Judges, I would like to thank you for your interest in the Rees Jeffreys Road Fund Competition.
We're celebrating 150 years since the birth of our benefactor William Rees Jeffreys.

For him, safe and appealing roads and streets were the key to a better quality of life for all.

As we recover from the pandemic, face the challenges of climate change and embrace new technologies, we have a unique opportunity to re-imagine our roads and streets in new ways.

We have great prizes to recognise the best new ideas.

We’re looking for new and innovative ideas, creatively presented. Don’t limit yourself – we welcome poems, paintings, songs, videos –whatever format works for you.

We use streets and roads every day for getting to school, receiving deliveries, going on holiday and getting out into the great British countryside.

What ideas do you have to make all our journeys enjoyable and safe?
