Statistics for the Annually replacement of Road Studs

The request was partially successful.

Dear Salford 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

Leigh, Maurice, Salford City Council

Dear Mr. Barker,      

 

I am writing in response to your Freedom of Information request of 5^th
March 2019. Your request was:

 

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.

 

The council’s response is as follows:

 

Total length of adopted highway network for Salford is: 680km

 

With regard to the number of Road Studs that are replaced annually in the
UK within our Region, I would make the following comments:

 

There are a number of teams carrying out road resurfacing/ improvements
and refurbishments across the city, both internally and externally
funded/procured. These schemes may or may not require the replacement or
installation of road studs. However, inventory data is not collected for
road studs specifically as they are a low value asset.

 

I regret that we are unable to assist further in this matter.

 

 

The council considers it has fulfilled your request. If you are
dissatisfied with the way your request has been handled, or wish to appeal
this decision, you may wish to reply direct to this email. Your appeal
review will be overseen by a senior officer.
