Statistics for the Annually replacement of Road Studs

The request was successful.

Dear Highland Council,

In brief my Company, Cyclops Road Studs Ltd has developed a device that illuminates road markings with UK, USA, CHINA & EUROPE patents granted and further patents pending globally.

I would very much appreciate information for the number of Road Studs that are replaced Annually in Scotland, within your Borough/County (the most recent year you have on record would be fine and just one year) could you please specify the year they relate to?

Could you also tell me the total miles of roads that you maintain/look after?

IT IS IMPERATIVE TO MY COMPANY THAT I HAVE THE CORRECT INFROMATION IN ORDER FOR ME TO BE ABLE TO FINALISE DISCUSSIONS WITH VARIOUS INVESTORS TO GET A ROUTE TO MARKET WHICH IS DEPENDENT ON THE ANNUAL REPLACEMENT FIGURES.

Yours faithfully,

Thomas Barker

Highland Council

Dear Mr Barker

 

Request for information under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act
2002

With regard to your request for information – Statistics for the Annually
replacement of Road Studs

 

We do not have a programme for replacement of road studs, we only provide
these where incorporated into new works. 

However we are assessing where reactive road studs would be beneficial in
road safety schemes. At this stage we do not have any numbers.

 

Under Section 20 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 you
have the right to request that the Highland Council reviews any aspect of
how it has dealt with your request. This requirement for review should be
put in writing to the Freedom of Information Officer, Chief Executive’s
Office, Glenurquhart Road, Inverness IV3 5NX, within 40 working days of
receipt of this letter. The request should include details of the
information requested and the aspects of the Highland Council’s response
which you are not satisfied with.

 

If you are subsequently dissatisfied with the outcome of the Council's
review, you have the right to appeal to the Scottish Information
Commissioner under Section 47 of the Act, within six months of receiving
the Council's review response.

 

Further guidance on information request reviews and right to appeal can be
found on the Scottish Information Commissioner website at
www.itspublicknowledge.info.

 

Yours sincerely

Dear Highland Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Highland Council's handling of my FOI request 'Statistics for the Annually replacement of Road Studs'.

[ GIVE DETAILS ABOUT YOUR COMPLAINT HERE ] THIS IS NOT A COMPLAINT
Thank you for your reply. I understand you don’t hold all information on road stud replacements, but any information would be helpful from any year (please specify the year). also, you say you will be looking in to active road studs, do you have any idea how many you will be using and why are you moving over to the active type? could you also let me know how many miles of roads you look after?

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/s...

Yours faithfully,

Thomas Barker

Dear Freedom of Information,

My request is; I need to know how many road studs you replaced annually within the area you are responsible for (can be from any year) but please specify the year. I would also need to know how many miles of roads you look after within your area. I hope this clarifies my request.

Yours sincerely,

Thomas Barker

Freedom of Information, Highland Council

Dear Mr Barker,
I refer to your email below regarding your request for a review of the council's response to your Freedom of Information request regarding road studs (our ref HC0226-5137)

In relation to the length of road within the Council Area the statistics regarding this can be found on our website at the link below:
https://www.highland.gov.uk/info/20005/r...

In relation to roads studs, our initial response stated that we don't have a programme for replacement of road studs and that road studs are only being provided in new road schemes. We don’t hold any figures for the number of road studs replaced in any given year as we don’t collect this information. Section 17 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 applies where the information requested is not held by a public authority. This section states that the Council must give you notice in writing that we do not hold the information you have requested.

I'm sorry if our initial response did not make this fact sufficiently clear.

If you remain dissatisfied with the outcome of this review, you have the right to appeal to the Scottish Information Commissioner. His contact details are:

Scottish Information Commissioner,
Kinburn Castle,
Doubledykes Road,
St Andrews, Fife
KY16 9DS
Telephone: 01334 464610
Fax: 01334 464611
e-mail: [email address]

Your request should contain details of the aspects of the Council's response with which you are dissatisfied and should be made within 6 months of receipt of this review response. If you are subsequently dissatisfied with the outcome of your appeal to the Commissioner you then have the right of appeal to the Court of Session regarding a point of law.

Yours sincerely,

Miles Watters
