Dear Mr Silverman

 

Thank you for your email of 5 August requesting the data on which is based
the statement that 95% of Highways England’s pavement (road) assets did
not require further investigation for maintenance. Your request has been
considered under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

 

Please note that in our 2018-19 annual assessment of Highways England’s
performance we state that 95.5% of Highways England’s pavement (road)
asset did not require further investigation for maintenance (not 95% as
stated in your email). The target for the metric is 95%.

 

The pavement condition metric is a key performance indicator and considers
the structural condition of the pavement (road) asset to provide a proxy
for the need to renew the carriageway surface. You can find details of the
metric calculation from page 199 onwards within Highways England’s
operational metric manual:

[1]https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk...

 

Highways England publishes performance data for all key and non-key
performance indicators against performance monitoring statements. The
figure of 95.5% quoted in our annual assessment is based on the data
presented within the performance monitoring statements. Network condition
data (for 2018-19) is provided on the “PS8 – Network in good condition”
tab within the following spreadsheet:

Your rights of appeal 

 

If you are not satisfied with the way in which your request has been
handled, you have the right to ask for an internal review. Internal review
requests should be submitted within two months of the date of this email,
and should be addressed to the Board Secretariat at:

 

Office of Rail and Road 

One Kemble Street 

London 

WC2B 4AN 

Email: [3][email address]

 

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you may
apply directly to the Information Commissioner (IC) for a decision.
Generally the IC cannot make a decision unless you have exhausted the
complaints procedure provided by ORR. The IC can be contacted at:
