The Highways Agency was an executive agency of the Department for Transport, responsible for building and maintaining England's trunk roads network, which includes most of the country's motorways (notable exceptions include the privately operated M6 Toll motorway, the M602, and a number of urban motorways). The agency also employed Traffic Officers to clear up after accidents, help the police, and manage traffic during roadworks and after accidents.

The agency was replaced by a new company called Highways England on 1 April 2015.
