Road condition surveys
We are responsible for maintaining the adopted roads and pavements in County Durham.
An adopted road or pavement is one that we have taken legal responsibility to maintain. This generally covers the centre of the road to the back of the footpath or roadside verge.
We do a variety of surveys throughout the year such as:
- safety inspections
- coarse visual inspections
- footway network surveys
- SCANNER surveys
- skid resistance surveys.
Any road or pavement which at the time of inspection is assessed as possibly becoming an imminent danger to road users or pedestrians, is noted and repairs arranged. Skidding resistance of the county roads is assessed using surveys as explained in our
The results from all the condition surveys are analysed and collated and used as part of the process for deciding where to carry out future structural maintenance works such as:
- surface treatment
- drainage improvement
