Highway Infrastructure Policy and Strategy

Details of our Highway Infrastructure Asset Management Policy and strategic approach.

Supporting the delivery of highway services to enable safe and effective roads and transport that offers choice, is convenient to use, enhances the environment and enables economic growth.

The Code of Practice Well-managed Highway Infrastructure promotes the adoption of an integrated asset management approach to highway infrastructure based on the establishment of local levels of service through risk-based assessment.

It recommends highway authorities develop and publish an asset management policy and a strategy that aligns with the corporate vision and demonstrates the contribution the highway infrastructure makes towards achieving this vision.

Our strategy, produced and approved in 2020, focuses on:

  • the asset management framework and approach to individual asset group strategies for:
    • carriageways
    • footways and cycleways
    • bridges and structures
    • highway drainage
    • traffic signals and intelligent control systems
    • highway verges
    • trees
  • our levels of services that set out how the highway infrastructure assets are expected to perform in clear and effective terms, that can be monitored against the public and highway user’s expectations.
