the new way of working
The New Way of Working
  • With reduced resources, we must refocus priorities to manage and understand the impact on service users. We therefore need to:
    • Work smarter to provide new levels of inspections and cyclical maintenance to ensure we meet our duty of care
    • Target our resources on carrying out reactive maintenance rather than planned maintenance
    • Minimise the depreciation of the assets by targeting resources where they are most effective
areas affected
Areas affected
  • There will be a reduction in works programmes and staffing levels in the following areas:
    • Management, administration and supervision
    • Street lighting
    • General highway maintenance
    • Highway and footway reconstruction programmes
    • Urgent repairs
    • Bridges and structures
    • Traffic management
    • Highway drainage
    • Asset management
what does this mean for customers
What does this mean for Customers?
  • Defects and customer reports will take longer to be inspected / investigated
  • Highway and street lighting defects will take longer to be repaired
  • Gullies will be cleaned less frequently
  • There will be fewer highway improvement schemes:
    • Traffic management, safety and capacity improvements
    • Footway and carriageway resurfacing

However, revised timescales do not contravene any

statutory duties, recommendations or codes of practice
