Statistics for the Annually replacement of Road Studs

Currently waiting for a response from Hull City Council, they should respond promptly and normally no later than (details).

Dear Hull City 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
