Statistics for the Annually replacement of Road Studs

The request was successful.

Dear Peterborough 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? And the total miles of roads that your calculation is taken from for 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 Sir / Madam,

 

Your request for information, with reference number CRN1903655825 has

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

only option left to me 

IT IS IMPERATIVE TO MY COMPANY THAT I HAVE THE CORRECT INFORMATION 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.

        

Our Response:

Response
 
The Council does not hold the requested information. All we can
advise is that in some years we replace no road studs. The main time
that the studs do get replaced is following a whole road resurfacing
scheme. It should be noted that only certain classifications of roads
need to have these studs and therefore many roads do not.
