Damage to bridges and structures

1. Overview

As the Highway Authority we have a duty to maintain the Council’s highway structures, these can be road bridges, footbridges, retaining walls or other structures that support or span the public highway.

We have a limited amount of money to spend on maintaining bridges and structures. This means we have to give priority to the more serious problems in the area.

Bridges and structures that may be affecting public safety are given priority.
