Highways Policies, Strategies and Plans

3. Highway maintenance Policies

We apply an asset management approach to the management of highway infrastructure assets such as roads, footways and street lights.

We prioritise routine inspection and maintenance frequencies, as well as capital investment schemes using a structured risk based approach, maximising value for money.

We have a regular programme of cyclical maintenance activities including gulley emptying, ditching, siding, weed control, grass cutting and cleansing, which help us to protect the structural integrity of highway infrastructure assets.
