How We Work
With our partners, we’ve organised our work into six key areas. Each area has a steering group of colleagues from partner organisations, led by a named individual.
Our work areas are:
- Route Operations
- Local Authority Delivery for stages 1&2 with a parallel Steering Group for Stage 3
- Safety and Security
- Highways and Transport
- Finance and Procurement
As a company, we are committed to reporting openly on preparations for the arrival of the Tour. We will honour this commitment through three ”Readiness Reports” which describe our plans and progress.
The first Readiness Report covering the period October-December 2013 is available here to download.
