Roads and pavements

The council is responsible for maintaining the roads (technically known as 'carriageways') and pavements (known as 'footways') of adopted highways within the borough.

An adopted highway is one where the council has taken on the legal responsibility for maintenance.

Every adopted highway is inspected on a regular basis. Any area of road or pavement which the inspector identifies as an imminent danger to road users or pedestrians is noted and a repair arranged.

If during this inspection any streets are judged to need more extensive treatment they are listed and their condition is visually assessed at a later date. Each year the council draws up an annual structural maintenance programme.
