Highway asset management

Effectively managing our highway assets (such as roads, pavements and drainage system) is vital to the economic, social and environmental well-being of the County.

We aim to get the best value out of our highway assets over their whole life by focusing investment on long term planned activities, preventing expensive short-term repairs. This way, we can:

  • maximise value for money
  • manage risk
  • maintain a highway environment that is safe and secure and accessible.

Our Highway Asset Management policy and strategy documents set out how we will deliver against the Council’s key priorities, taking into consideration customer needs, asset condition and best use of available resources.
