Statistics for the Annually replacement of Road Studs

We're waiting for Thomas Barker to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Gateshead Metropolitan Borough 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 the UK within your Region? I understand that this is information that will be held on your behalf by various contractors and I have tried unsuccessfully to date to get access to the statistics I require by contacting the various manufacturers and road marking companies.

The only guide I have managed to source to Date is an online article which states that there are approx. 5oo Million Road Studs in the UK?

I have been advised to request an FOI in order to get these figures as I have been unable to get the information, I require from any of the contacts I have approached previously, and this seems to be the only option left to me

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

OUR RESPONSE

Hello Mr Barker,
We don't have an annual programme or budget to replace road studs in
Gateshead. In fact, there aren't that many roads that actually have any
installed!

We usually replace road studs in conjunction with our surface dressing
works and we'll get the occasional safety improvement scheme so I would
estimate that maybe maximum 1,000 a year are replaced.

This is a best guess as there isn't any data available.

Dear Nicola Ward,

I don’t understand what the confusion is. I simply need to know how many road studs you replaced annually within your county (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 county.

Yours sincerely,

Thomas Barker

Dear Nicola Ward,

I am still waiting for the information as to how many road studs were replaced annually in your borough/county, it can be from any year ideally most recent year on record. plus, how many miles of roads you are responsible for.

Yours sincerely,

Thomas Barker
