Highway Infrastructure Policy and Strategy

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

The West Sussex Highway network is perhaps one of the single most valuable publicly owned assets in the county.

With the highway network being used daily by residents, businesses and visitors, it provides an ongoing and vital contribution to the growth of the county, whilst meeting the economic, social and environment needs of our communities.

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 policy and strategy has been updated and approved in September 2023 and 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.
