Dear Poole 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? 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.
Thank you for your email.

Dear Mr Barker
Thank you for your request submitted under the Freedom of Information Act.
Unfortunately, the Council does not hold records about the number of road
studs on its roads nor how many have been replaced annually.
The Council does not have an annual program of works to replace road
Details of the Council’s highway lengths are included in this document
which is published on our website.
We have re-produced a table below from the document which gives the total
lengths of roads in Poole by classification.
We hope this information is helpful and are sorry we cannot help further
with your request.
