Safety inspections of the carriageway are undertaken from a slow moving

Inspection frequencies are based on road hierarchy, and are carried out
monthly, twelve times a year.

 

The Hierarchy Classification

This road is deemed to be maintenance category 3B which is a Secondary

The Defect Intervention Criteria adopted in relation to the identification
of all categories of highway potholes

The Council's current inspection policy is set in accordance with the 2016
UK Roads Liaison Group Well Managed Highway Infrastructure: A Code of
Practice.

 

The time period for a make safe or repair to be carried out after
identification of the defect, is dependent on its determined risk factor. 
Category 1 defects are repaired within 2 working days; Category 2H defects
are repaired within 5 working days from the time the defect is assessed in
accordance with the Highway Safety Inspection Policy.

 

If a make safe repair is effected, then permanent repairs will be
undertaken within 28 days of the initial make safe repair. Other, less
severe defects or larger structural problems will be programmed for
appropriate repair over a longer time period, or as part of a routine
maintenance programme.
