  • We have now inspected the defect according to our highways inspection policy which can be viewed at roads-transport-parking/ highways/ highways-plans-policies/ highway-inspection-policy.

    On receipt of reports, our Highway Inspection team make an assessment to determine if works are required. Only the larger defects which meet the safety intervention levels as outlined in the Inspection Policy are repaired. Any remaining defects are monitored for deterioration and added to other programmes of work for repair when resources are available. We also monitor and inspect the quality of repairs aiming to ensure that any work is carried out to the best and most appropriate standard.

    The limited resource available each year is insufficient to address all defects identified. For this reason, whilst priority defects will receive a repair within appropriate timescales as set out by the above policy, more minor defects will not be scheduled for immediate repair.

    As the defect you have reported does not meet the required level for an immediate repair it will not be repaired at this stage. Thank you for reporting this to us and this report has been closed.

    State changed to: Closed
