Dear Freedom Of Information (FOI),
Thankyou for the information sent , however i am somewhat confused as the street report appears to show all works carried out in Stokebridge Lane upto its junction with A4103 , my request was for works carried out on the A4103 with its junction of stokebridge lane. In light of this error , may i simplify my request ,please provide a detailed copy of the safety inspection/survey which resulted in the resurfacing works on the A4103 with its juction of stokebridge lane on 3-10-2011. Also Ref: my question ( have the council recieved any complaints regarding this junction ) you answered NO. I assume therefore that any Traffic Management Reports submitted by West Mercia Police pertaining to this stretch of road are taken as advisory only , for eg. when the road condition is very poor or deemed to be dangerous to road users ?. A complaint i presume would have to be acted upon immediately ?

Yours sincerely,

tina mitchell

Dear Freedom Of Information (FOI),
Thankyou for the information sent , however i am not an engineer and the table of figures are somewhat beyond me , please could you ask the relevant department for an explanation in simple terms as to why this section of road was resurfaced on the 3-10-2011 , A4103 Hereford to Worcester main road with its juction of stokebridge lane the c1148/c1155. Please could you clarify the correct road number for the lane as im confused , the emergency services state its the c1155 , the council state its the c1148 , yet on the councils web page for extra funding for c and u roads it states that the c1148 is approx. a mile away at Perton on the main Ledbury to Hereford road A438 ? i look forward to your reply .

Yours sincerely,

Dear Madam

Further to my email below, I have forwarded your queries to the department concerned. They have now confirmed that the information that you were provided with in my email of 28th August 2012 identified to the engineers that there was an issue with the road surface relating to skidding.

The information that was sent to you is a computer generated interpretation of an electronic assessment that is carried out each year. It is broken down into 10 metre lengths of road identifying the average skid resistance of each length on either side of the left or right hand carriageway. The column of particular significance in the report is the SCRIM deficiency with the minus figures being the cause of initial concern for the engineers.

This survey investigation highlighted the potential issue of skidding. This led Amey to erect 'slippery road' signs to warn road users to appropriately manage their driving. The work was then added to the works programme for the start of the 2011 financial year. This programme was approved by Herefordshire Council. As a consequence the road was ultimately resurfaced.

Regarding road numbers, please find attached a map to identify these.

Claire
