Statistics for the Annually replacement of Road Studs

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

Dear Leicestershire County 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

Dear [email address],

I don’t have a specific timeline as such, so 4-6 weeks would be fine, as i understand it should never take longer than 40 working days to complete. Please confirm if you can proceed with my request within this timeline?

Yours sincerely,

Dear Mr Barker,

 

Thank you for your reply. I think there may be some misunderstanding. To
clarify - we will provide our response within 20 working days.  The
information we required from you was the time period - do you just require
the figures for the last year, or would you like a longer timeframe, for
example the past 3 years? Are you happy for a single annual figure or
would you like this broken down into months?

Apologies for any confusion.

Kind regards,

FOI Team

Leicestershire County Council

Dear [email address],

The figures for the last year will be fine and as a single annual figure. I would also appreciate to know the total miles of roads that your calculation is taken from for your region?

I hope that this will be a lot less workload for you to compile. please confirm!

Yours sincerely,

Thomas Barker

Dear Mr Barker,

Thank you for your response. We will now process your request and
provide data for the past year together with the total road mileage.

Kind regards,
