Maintenance and inspection

To safeguard public safety, as the Highway Authority we undertake inspections of all council owned highway bridges and structures.

The remainder are owned and maintained privately. For example the majority of railway over/under road bridges are owned and maintained by Network Rail.


Reporting damage to a bridge or highway structure

To report a defect to highway bridges or structures, please contact us.

Outside normal office hours, damage that could cause a safety issue should be reported to the police.
