Highway Maintenance Efficiency Programme HMEP HMEP is the Highways Maintenance Efficiency Programme, which exists to support the sector on its journey to transform highway services.
 HMEP does this by the highways sector, for the highways sector, working with people and organisations to enable change, so that greater savings and efficiencies can be achieved and the demand for improved highway services can be met.

HMEP is a £6million, Department for Transport funded and sector led transformation programme. HMEP connects networks from across the highways sector and provides the tools and resources to ignite ideas and help leaders and managers to transform delivery of roads and services through greater efficiencies.
