Pavement Maintenance

Bedford Borough Council is responsible for the management, maintenance and improvement of the non-trunk highway network in Bedford Borough. The Council has a legal responsibility for the highway network in terms of keeping the highway available and safe for passage for the travelling public. It undertakes this duty in its role as the Highway Authority.

 

Bedford Borough Council uses an inspection manual as a tool to identify and determine the types of defects which are likely to create a danger or serious inconvenience to users of the network or the wider community. The inspection manual introduces the principle of defect risk assessment, helps to identify the most appropriate action in response to each defect found and assists to prioritise the wider highway network maintenance and management function.

Repairs normally fall into two categories – the smaller repairs, defined as Category 1 or Category 2 defects according to their severity, which are carried out to make the roads & pavements safe, and the larger repairs such as relaying kerbs or resurfacing roads. These are usually planned many months (or even years) in advance.
