Minutes:

The Assistant Director of Transport, Highways & Environment presented a report which sought endorsement and approval for a proposed approach to improved highway inspection and maintenance, to ensure that guidance in the updated Well Managed Highways Infrastructure code of practice (the Code) was adopted before its October 2018 implementation date.

 

Details of this approach were set out in Annex 1 to the report.  It was also proposed, by October 2019, to extend a similar approach across wider Economy & Place assets not wholly covered by the Code; these were listed in Annex 1 as category 2 assets. 

 

In response to Members’ questions, Officers confirmed that the annex set out the minimum standards that would apply and that the inspection frequency of cycleways and footways would depend on usage.

 

Resolved:  (i)      That the approach to improved highway inspection and maintenance detailed in Annex 1 to the report be endorsed and approved.

 

                   (ii)      That the development of complementary risk-based inspection and maintenance practices across wider asset groups, based on the ideals of the code, be supported, with the inclusion of these wider assets to be determined by the appropriate Executive Members.

 

                   (iii)     That additional policy and process documentation for all assets be brought before the relevant Executive Member Decision Sessions once completed.

 

Reason:     To deliver innovative and effective approaches to highway asset management and wider asset groups and to provide wide ranging improvements to the built and natural environment across the city.
