Analysis: Well-managed highways under a risk-based approach


As revealed in October's Surveyor, the review of the UK Roads Liaison Group’s (UKRLG) national codes of practice: Well-maintained Highways, Management of Highway Structures, and Well-lit Highways has now been completed. The outcome is a single, updated code entitled Well-managed Highway Infrastructure that is set to profoundly change the future direction of the UK’s highway maintenance sector through the adoption of good practice asset management principles, and through the adoption of a risk-based approach that fully aligns with ISO 55000.

The code is expected in October and all local highway authorities will have two years from the date of publication to implement the 36 recommendations contained within, which includes the full adoption of the risk-based approach.
